Millennials Likely to Injure Themselves During a DIY Project

A new study found millennials are over twice as likely as older adults to brag about their do-it-yourself projects on social media. But that doesn't mean they're good at them.Because they're also more likely to HURT themselves in the process.

Millennials are 23% more likely to end up in the E.R. because of a home improvement injury. And RUSHING might have something to do with it. They're 22% less likely to complete a project, but 65% more likely to finish ahead of schedule when they do.

Young people might like the IDEA of do-it-yourself projects more than the process though. They're about five times more likely to hire a pro for their next project.
