Multigenerational Households Are Increasing

Growth of multigenerational households has accelerated during the economic downturn. In 2008, 6.2 million intergenerational households resided in the United States (5.3% of all households.) That number jumped to 7.1 million households by 2010 (6.1% of all households.) The increase in these two years represents a faster rate of growth than the previous eight years combined.
