More than half of Greeks aged 25-34 live with parents

TAGS: Society, Statistics

More than half of Greeks in their mid-20s to mid-30s live with their parents, a significantly larger proportion than the average of 28.5 percent in the 28-member European Union, according to the results of a survey by the bloc’s statistics service Eurostat which were made public on Tuesday.

Specifically, 56.3 percent of Greeks aged 25 to 34 said they lived with their parents in 2018, the highest rate in the EU after Croatia and Slovakia, where the rates were 59.7 percent and 57 percent respectively.

The repercussions of Greece’s economic crisis appear to have played a role in keeping Greeks at home for longer, with statistics pointing to a slight but steady increase from 50.6 percent in 2010 to 53.4 percent in 2015 and 56.3 percent last year.

The rate was the lowest in Northern European countries, such as Sweden with 6 percent, Finland on 4.7 percent, and Denmark, where 3.2 percent of the 25-34 age group live with their parents.
