Reassessing the Decline in Parent-Child Old-Age Coresidence During the 20th Century
AbstractThe share of the elderly living with a child has decreased monotonically throughout the twentieth century, and this has been interpreted as a decline in the role of the family in providing old-age assistance. However, at the same time, the probability of reaching old age has increased dramatically. This note derives a measure that incorporates these two factors to determine whether the expected life years lived in old-age coresidence with a child has in fact decreased.
