Young Europeans prefer not to leave the parental home early

household membersA new eurostat study analyzes the average age of young people leaving the parental household in Europe. People of Croatia, Malta, Slovakia, and Italy on average are not leaving their parents before age of 30.

In EU, the average age of young people leaving the parental household stood at 26.1 in 2015. But significant differences can be observed across the Member States. The three Nordic Member States were those where young people left home earliest: at 19.7 years in Sweden, 21.1 years in Denmark and 21.9 years in Finland. They were followed by Luxembourg (23.1), Estonia (23.6), the Netherlands (23.7), Germany (23.8) and France (23.9).

At the opposite end of the scale, young people in Croatia remained the longest in the parental household. They left home at an average age of 31.4, followed by Malta (31.1), Slovakia (30.9), Italy (30.1), Greece (29.4), Spain (29.0), Portugal (28.9) and Bulgaria (28.7).

It should also be noted that in every EU Member State, young women tended to leave the parental household earlier than men. The highest differences between the genders were registered in Romania (25.6 years for women, compared with 30.0 for men), Bulgaria (26.8 vs. 30.5) and Croatia (29.6 vs. 33.0).
