Mother-Child Coresidence and Quasi-Coresidence in Peninsular Malaysia
AbstractThis paper defines quasi-coresidence, a type of living arrangment in Southeast Asia in which parents and children live separately but in close proximity and see and help one another frequently. Since this is a new concept that has not been previously researched, we consider a number of alternative measures of quasi-coresidence, including the frequency with which adult children visit their mothers, provide assistance to their mothers, or both visit and assist their mother.
