Young Czechs leave parents later than most of their EU peers

Young Czechs usually move away from their parents aged 26 to 27, which is slightly above the EU average, suggests new data published by the Czech Statistics Office on Friday.

There are currently 1.2 million people in the Czech Republic in the age bracket 15 to 26, which amounts to 12 percent of the country’s total population.

Men are slightly slower to move from their parents than women. While Czech girls leave home around the age of 25, most men move out at the age of 27.
