One in four Italians over 40 get allowance, survey says


(see previous) Rome, May 21 - More than one out of four
Italians over 40 years old continue to need an allowance from
their parents, a survey by farmer's association Coldiretti said
For those between 35 and 40 years old, some 28% survive
with money from mom and dad, 43% of those between 25 and 34
years old still lean on their families' income and 89% of those
between 18 and 24 years old need their allowance to get by, the
survey 'Youth in Crisis', compiled together with the
Trieste-based SWG polling agency, said.
Economic aid from parents does not stop with employment,
Coldiretti said.
More than one in four (27%) Italians under 40 said that
they are unable to make ends meet without financial assistance
from their parents.
"Family has become a social safety net that serves to
protect its members in need," Coldiretti President Sergio Marini
Over half, 51%, of Italians under 40 years old live with
their parents, 13% by their own choice and 38% because they
cannot afford to live on their own, the survey said.
Specifically, 26% of Italians between 35 and 40 years old
are still at their parents home, 48% between 25 and 34 years old
and 89% of those between 18 and 24 years old.
In the agricultural sector, 32% of young farmers living
with their parents are there for economic reasons, while 31%
live with their families by choice.
Of Italians over 40 years old, 61% believe that their
future will be worse than what their parents experienced.
