Nearly half of all furries sampled indicate that they currently reside with their parents (see figure above).1 Another 30% or so live with a friend or significant other, 15% live alone, and the rest report other accommodations. The high proportion of furries living with their parents is thought to be a product of two factors: (1) furries’ relatively young age and (2) their tendency to attend post-secondary education. Both of these factors may necessitate living with their parents for financial reasons. Indeed, as the figure below demonstrates, when the data for older and younger furries are split up, older furries seem to move away from their parents and into their own homes or to live with a spouse or relationship partner.

The co-founders of Furscience are deep in planning mode… lots of new research and publications in the pipeline!
It's really awesome to know that we furries have some support outside of just ourselves to get a better understanding of our community. Shout out to @furscience and the great work they do for our community both internally and with the public. https://twitter.com/furscience/status/1454525649817948168
@FusEldar @NotGyro @TwettirD @BlueFolf @HIGHY3NA We estimate 500k and 1.5 million furries worldwide. We have neat data comparing the brony and furry fandoms. Brony samples aged every year, but furry samples didn’t. It could indicate younger furries are coming into the fandom yearly/sampling. Conventions seem to be growing, too.
Our Photographers are working their hardest to deliver the Fursuit Group Photo as soon as possible! For now, enjoy a sneak peak featuring our GoHs and Special Guest (@iPadunk, Zipper, @Furscience, and @UncleKage!)
