What qualifies as an adult anymore?

  people 15 to 29 years old are at least twice as likely as adults to be unemployed
30 is adulthood in their interpretation of the data.

I have two kids and own a house but I guess I'm still 5 years away from being an adult!

Unless maybe their definition of adult is 18+ and that sentence means "the 15-29 age bracket is twice as likely as 18+ to be unemployed"

Haha, I was just thinking that if I'm only 4 years away from being an adult, then that feels about right. I don't feel like an adult at all, but maybe when I'm in my 30s.

Wow, I can't imagine having 2 kids or a house.

The traditional right of passage, your first divorce.

And 15-17 are lumped in with actual adults.
