In swiftly industrializing international locations, demographic alterations proceed to have major results at the healthiness of people and households, and as combination human and monetary capital. those results might be analyzed by way of inter-generational transfers of time, funds, items, and companies. The chapters during this quantity significantly advance our knowing of the character and size of transfers, their explanations and mechanisms, and their macro-level dimensions, specially within the context of demographic transitions.

The chapters contain unique empirical analyses of datasets from a few twenty nations taking the reader past the yankee context in an effort to try the applicability of a few of the theories built at the foundation of yank information. They expand the normal research of inter-generational transfers via reading types of transfers, specifically items, cash, resources, time, co-residence and visits. additionally, the chapters transcend the learn of conventional mum or dad – baby transfers to check transfers to kins and the bi-directionality of transfers.

Sample text

In response to the absence of selected kin, transfer relationships with some kin are heightened, and with others they are diminished. In some of these cases, only one of the two parties involved in the relational dyad appears to have changed transfer behaviour. In others, both parties have modified their behaviour. In short, though weakened by some data problems, the analysis has demonstrated the array of transfer-related responses to various kin-specific absences. Some of these imply active substitution of surviving kin for deceased.

KINSHIP NETWORKS AND INTERGENERATIONAL TRANSFERS C. Y. CYRUS CHU Institute of Economics, Academia Sinica RUOH-RONG YU Survey Research Centre, Academia Sinica 1. Introduction Most existing literature on intergenerational transfers in the West focuses on downward transfers from parents to children. Two strands of studies have been developed in the past decade.

Similarly, kin availability appears to affect the likelihood of transfers much more than it does their value. The data do not allow us to isolate the reason for this difference. It could stem from differential quality in measurement to the extent that people may be less likely— intentionally or not—to give accurate responses to questions about specific transfers even if they remember that a transfer occurred. Otherwise, measurement problems could arise because relational dyads in which there was one transfer in the reference period—say, from a migrant kin—were indistinguishable from relational dyads where there were multiple transfers over an extended period.
