A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that Australians are living at home with their parents for longer than they did a decade ago. Some 58% of 18-19yr olds now live at home, compared to 54% in 2007, while 28% of 22-24yr olds live at home (up from 24% in 2007). Meanwhile, 42% of 30-34yr olds are renting, up significantly since 2007 (33%) and now 38% of 35-39yr olds are renting, up from 29% in 2007. Meanwhile, just under a third of Australians aged 30-34 have a home loan (33%), down from 43% in 2007, and 43% of 35-39yr olds have a home loan, down from 51% in 2007. The figures for 40-something Australians are little changed from a decade ago, with 51% of 40-44 yr olds now having a home loan (virtually unchanged from a decade ago). Now only 12% of 40-44yr olds own their home (down from 18% in 2007), and just 18% of 45-49yr olds own their home (28% in 2007). This trend is evident through older age groups.
