    The evidence in this article seems pretty anecdotal. Anyone else read the same by another researched source?

    If true it would be another sign we're returning to the good ol days of America. The good ol days where siblings shared twin sized mattresses and extended families all lived in the same house.

    Seems a difficult thing to trace though. At least its a Census year.

    Well home sales and rentals are both down and they have to be living somewhere.

    This could lead to stronger families but will more likely lead to more domestic violence.

    Not that I doubt this is an actual phenomenon...I just doubt it's a new phenomenon. I heard about this trend 10 years ago.

    Yeah well the current problems started over 10 years ago.

    That great big sucking sound.

    And when you are trying to figure it out, go for average wages with inflation figured in.
    Not average incomes, That top 1% skews the heck out of average incomes.
