Dr Kate Prickett – Adult children living at home longer

From Sunday Morning, 11:47 am on 2 October 2022

More young people are living at home with their parents. The Australian Institute of Family Studies has reported that nearly half a million Australians between the ages of 25 and 34 are at home, or back at home with Mum and Dad. That's a 17% jump in five years.

Dr Kate Prickett is a family sociologist and demographer from Victoria University's Roy McKenzie Centre for the Study of Families.
