As any journalist will tell you, companies love to survey millennials. (We get press releases on such surveys pretty much daily.) EY — the former Ernst & Young — is no exception: They've just released "The Millennial Economy 2018," which updates the data from a survey named "The Millennial Economy" that was conducted 2 years ago.
The big picture: Two big findings stand out. The proportion of millennials living with their parents has plunged, from 30% in 2016 to 16% in 2018. The proportion of millennials who own their own home has soared, from 26% in 2016 to 40% in 2018.
