Number of adult children who live with their parents are increasing, according to a new study.

A study released by the Pew Research Center, found that 32 percent of 18 to 34 year-olds are living in their parents' home. Broad demographic shifts in marital status, educational attainment and employment are reasons that adults continue to stay with their parents.

In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents' home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household.

About 31.6% of young adults were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, according to the study. While, some 14% of young adults were heading up a household in which they lived alone, were a single parent or lived with one or more roommates. The remaining 22% lived in the home of another family member, a non-relative, or in group quarters.
