Pew has a report up on the percentage of young adults moving back home: “Home for the Holidays…and Every Other Day: Recession Brings Many Young Adults Back to the Nest.” According to the article:

To measure changes in household arrangements, the Pew Research survey asked all adults if they lived in their own home or with one or both parents in the parents’ home. The survey further asked all adults if they had moved back in with their parents “as a result of the recession.” Overall, about 11% of all adults 18 or older live with their parents in their home and 4% of all adults say they were forced to move back with their parents because of the recession, a proportion that rises to 10% among those ages 18 to 34.

The full report, including data on the percentages of young people living alone, is available here.
