Life Inc. – Meet the new roommates: Mom and Dad
About 51.4 million people were living in some kind of multigenerational household in 2009, according to the Pew Research Center’s analysis of the Census data released last month. That’s a more than 10 percent increase from just two years earlier, when about 46.5 million people were living with another generation of their family, according to Pew.
The percentage of Americans who are living with multiple generations has been on the rise for a few decades, reversing a trend toward living apart that had begun in the 1940s. About 16.7 percent of Americans lived with someone from another generation in 2009, up from 15.1 percent in 2000.
