Living Parents and Children Under 21: Forty-four percent of Americans between the ages of 45 and 55 have at least one living parent and a child who is under 21 years old. In figure 2 we find a higher proportion of men than women in this “living sandwich.” Asian Americans are the most likely to have both living parents and young children, while African Americans are least likely. Comparing across levels of educational attainment, 54 percent of those with at least a college degree find themselves caring for children and their own parents, while only 31 percent of those with less than a high school diploma do so. Others who are more likely to be in this situation are foreign-born Americans and rural residents.
