China now has more than 50 million empty-nest young people living in big cities, according to an official report.
Known as Kongchaoqingnian in Chinese, the term mainly refers to people between the ages of 20 and 39 who work far from home and away from their parents or partners.
Some of these people have good social lives but still feel empty inside.
Chinese website NetEase surveyed 5,000 such young people and compared the results with big data. The findings revealed that 68 percent of those surveyed have felt lonely in the past week, while only 14 percent say they never feel empty.
The survey also found that young men have a bigger inclination to become Kongchaoqingnian than their female counterparts.
Respondents listed not owning a house, being single and being disoriented about the future were their top three concerns. (news from CRI)

I have knwn about this and even know many people in China who live away from their families for most of the year. However, the term 'empty nesters' is usually applied to the parents of such children after they find themselves alone and without their children. Thus they have become 'empty nesterrs'.
