Title Shifts in coresidence among the oldest-old in China: comparing decedents and survivors
Date 2008-12-30
Description What we know about transitions in coresidence of older adults in China is based upon panel data involving survivors. This paper examines the tendency to shift and determinants of shifts in coresidence with adult children among very old, comparing survivors of an inter-survey period with decedents. Data come from the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey covering the period 1998-2005.
