How Far Away Do You Live from Where You Grew Up?

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

 

 

How far away do you currently live from the home you grew up in?  If you moved around as a kid, pick the place you lived longest.

Someone asked over 10,000 Americans, and 57% of us still live in our home state.  That includes 33% who still live in their hometown.

Some of those same people have stayed VERY close to home:  4% overall said they live in the same neighborhood they grew up in . . . another 3% live on the same street . . . and 10% of Americans live in the same HOME they were raised in.

Most of the people in that last group are still fairly young . . . 16% of adults under 30 are still living at home.

But 3% of SENIORS said the same.  They’re currently living in their childhood home.  (So maybe they inherited it . . . moved back to help take care of their parents . . . or just never left.)

On the other side of things, 4% of people said they’re “in a different country” than their childhood home.  So that’s people who were born elsewhere, or Americans who are now living abroad.
