When it comes to moving out of the house, South Dakota's young adults jump at that chance right away.

Recently, a study was performed by 24/7 Wall St. as they researched which states young adults live with their parents the most. South Dakota showed up as number 49, which means that South Dakota's young adults are second in the nation when it comes to leaving their parent's house. Here are the results for South Dakota:
