The most-cited reason for living near home is the tug of family ties, while the most-cited reason for leaving is job opportunities, according to a Pew Research Center survey. Those with college and professional degrees are much more likely to live farther from their parents than those with a high school education, in part because they have more job opportunities in big cities, and especially if spouses are juggling the career aspirations of two professionals. Career and income affect which type of payment families choose. Part of the reason is probably cultural — Western families have historically been the least rooted — but a large part is geographical: People live farther apart in rural areas. Families traveling from far-flung places, returning home for the holidays. The trend will continue, social scientists say, as baby boomers need more care in old age, and the growing number of two-income families seek help with child care. Middle-class, educated two-income couples — say, a schoolteacher and a nurse — seem to be more likely to live near parents than those with higher-earning careers. It found that with the exception of college or military service, 37 percent of Americans had never lived outside their hometown, and 57 percent had never lived outside their home state.
