Multigenerational households — three or more generations under one roof — are on the rise in the U.S.

Zoom in: The share of multigenerational households in Miami-Dade County is 13% — the highest in Florida, according to U.S. Census data from 2020.

  • Broward is at about 10% and Palm Beach at 7%.

The big picture: Financial concerns and caregiving needs are two of the major reasons people live with their parents (and parents' parents.)

  • There were 6 million multigenerational households in the U.S. in 2020, up from 5.1 million in 2010, according to Census data.
