More than half of those under 30 still live with their parents

There comes a time when every child leaves the nest. To fly is the law of life, but in recent years this decision has been postponed more. It is not uncommon to see young people around 30 at their parents' house. The lack of a job and the low salaries to which new generations enter the labor market lead to this situation.

In fact more than half of those under 30 still they live with their parents. This is revealed by the data from the household survey carried out by the Statistics National Institute, INE, where the tendency to remain in the paternal home of the new generations is confirmed. An issue that also ends up influencing other aspects such as the birth rate.


Independence at 34

The INE data indicate that 54.1% of young people between 25 and 29 years old still lives with his parents. A percentage that increases the 52% with which they closed the last collected data of 2015. We have to wait until the age of 34 to begin to see the new generations become independent, even though a third of these people have not yet left the parental home .

Again the crisis is what explains this situation among young people. Lack of an adequate job at the level of studies and very low wages among the new generations make it impossible for these people to leave the parental home and live on their own. Many of the children under 30 who live outside their parents' home confess to having to receive some help from their parents to reach the end of the month.


Effects on birth

Without a home to live in, it is more difficult for a young person to consider create your family. Independence from the age of 30 has a clear effect: the delay of paternity and the decrease in the birth rate. Spain has seen the number of births reduced in recent years and many more pregnancies are needed to counteract the negative growth that this country is experiencing.

Spain would need at least 719 births more to the day to counteract the negative trend that is experiencing the population of this country. This is shown by the report prepared by the Institute for Family Policy, IPF, data born in 1980 with those of 2014, it is seen that this figure has decreased by just over 143,000 births.


Some data that endanger the generational change, that is, two children per couple to ensure that the population does not lose members. To reach this goal in Spain, 260,000 more births would have to be produced by the end of the year, which means that there should be 719 more births than there are today.
