空巢青年

'empty-nest' youths

China has over 20 million "empty-nest" youths (young people living without their families) aged 20 to 39, and most of them live in major cities, according to a report. Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou are home to the biggest number of empty-nesters. They are young singles who live alone to work usually in cities.

一份报告显示,国内20岁至39岁的独居者约有2000万. 这些年轻人远离故乡、亲人,独自在城市打拼,他们被称为"空巢青年".

People with "empty-nest" syndrome used to refer mainly to the elderly whose children have moved out from their homes. The term's definition has been stretched in China as more young folk live alone away from their hometowns.

"空巢綜合症"原指子女离家所带给父母心理上的适应问题.现在,这一现象也普遍存在于背井离乡、在大城市生活的单身青年之中.
