70 percent of young German men still live with mum

The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reported on Tuesday that 62 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds were living at home in 2015, which isn’t much of a difference over the past decade: in 2005, 64 percent still lived at home.

And for young men, where they live is a big determining factor. Nearly 80 percent of young men living in towns of less than 10,000 people still lived with their parents – nearing percentages seen in Spain – while less than half (45 percent) of young men in cities of half a million or more still lived at home.
