It takes a lot for young Poles to become independent. The average age of moving out of their parents is almost 29. The situation deteriorates from 2020 onwards. Poles take 2 years longer to move out from their parents than the average European and almost 10 years longer than the average Swede. A government program of low-cost loans would help to improve this state of affairs.
The real record-holders here are the Portuguese, who leave the family nest at almost 34 years of age. They are followed by young citizens from countries such as Croatia, Serbia, Slovakia, Greece, and Bulgaria. In these cases, the average age of moving out is over 30.
Another regularity can be found in the Eurostat statistics. In all countries analyzed, it is women who leave the family home earlier than men. For example, in Poland, women move out of the home at the age of 27.6 years, while men move in almost 2.5 years later.
