Parental Bereavement: Heterogeneous Impacts of AIDS in Thailand

Publication Abstract

Wachter, Kenneth, John E. Knodel, and Mark VanLandingham. 2003. "Parental Bereavement: Heterogeneous Impacts of AIDS in Thailand." Journal of Econometrics, 112(1): 193-206.

Over the coming decades in Thailand, aging parents whose adult children sicken with AIDS will bear burdens of caregiving and loss. Using demographic miscrosimulation, we show that the new, lower projections of the HIV/AIDS epidemic still imply that 8% of Thais over the age of 50 in 1995 will lose one or more children to AIDS before their own deaths. The proportion of all losses that are multiple losses can vary from 12% to 33% under a range of assumptions about plausible family-to-family heterogeneity in risks of infection.
