Multigeneration households are on the rise due to economic factors and ethnic traditions.

San Francisco-based online real estate company Trulia studied the trends surrounding households with three or more generations — the sandwich generation — sharing a home in the largest 100 markets in the United States.

Many markets with the largest percentage of three-generation households are located in California, although Long Island, New York; El Paso, Texas; Honolulu; and Miami also have a substantial concentration of multigeneration households. Conversely, in the Midwest market of Madison, Wisconsin, only 2 percent of households have three or more generations living under one roof.
