A U.S. Census Bureau study of millennials found that the share of young adults in California living with their parents has increased sharply over the last decade.

About 34% of Californians 18 to 34 years old lived with their parents from 2009 to 2013. The national average was 30%. The California figure was up from 24.6% for that age group in 2000 and 21.8% in 1990, according to the Census Bureau.

Only 5.2% are currently living alone.

There was also a big increase in the percentage of 18-to-34-year-olds who have never been married -- about 68% in 2009-13 compared with 54% in 2000.


The report also showed increases in the percerntage of minorities in this age category. Fewer are employed and their wages are lower compared with previous years.
