Intergenerational Transfers of Informal Care Time Across Contexts and Sociodemographic Characteristics

Daniela Veronica Negraia, Emilio Zagheni; in Collaboration with Denys Dukhovnov (University of California, Berkeley, USA)

In this project, we measure the flows of nonmonetary resources (informal care time) between generations and genders, using representative cross-sectional national surveys and panel data. We estimate the differences in care time production and consumption across demographic groups.  Detailed Description
