Table FG10

For those tracking the "doubling up" trend during the Great Recession, the Census Bureau has a table for you. First introduced in 2008, table FG10 shows the number of households that include adult children or other relatives of the householder. Between 2008 and 2010, these extended-family households grew by more than 800,000 to 9.8 million--or about 8 percent of all households and 12 percent of all families.

The number of householders whose adult children live with them grew 11 percent between 2008 and 2010 (to 5.3 million). The number with a parent in their home expanded by a larger 13 percent (to 2.3 million). By race and Hispanic origin, blacks are most likely to have adult children in their home, and Asians are most likely to have a parent living with them.
