How Many Croatians Aged 18 to 34 Still Live with Mom and Dad?

Daniela Rogulj

With one of the highest percentages in Europe, 70% of Croats aged 18 to 34 still live with “Mama and Tata”. The data actually shows a slight decrease in the percentage, which was 71.3% in 2013, and 72.2% in 2012.

Jutarnjii List reports that a recently published survey by Eurostat shows that a record number of young Croats (70.3% to be exact), aged 18-34, still live with their parents, which is well above the European Union average (47.9%). The fastest in Europe to become independent are young Danes, where only 19.7% of 18-34 years have not moved away from Mom and Dad.


Croats can most similarly relate to Slovaks where 69.6% of them still live with their parents, and Serbs where 69.5% of young people still live with their parents. Of the great European nations, Italy came in high with 67.3% of young Italians still living at home. The percentage is also high in Portugal (62.9%), Slovenia (60.8%) and Poland (60.9%). Britons in this group calculated only 34.3% and Germans with 43.1%.


The only country with a higher percentage than Croatia is Macedonia, coming in at 72.5%.


Most countries submitted data for 2015 and for Croatia, data was most recently available from 2014, which still shows a slight decrease in the percentage – with 71.3% in 2013 and 72.2% in 2012.
