Living Arrangements of the Elderly: Differences According to Ancestry and Generation

Publication Abstract

Clarke, Clifford J., and Lisa Neidert. 1992. "Living Arrangements of the Elderly: Differences According to Ancestry and Generation." Gerontologist, 32 796-804.

Using data from the November 1979 Current Population Survey, the pattern of living with relatives among American elderly of European origin was examined. The data show that, in general, the elderly with Southern, Central, and Eastern European ancestries were more likely to live with relatives than were their Northwestern European counterparts. There were exceptions, most notably those elderly with a Russian background. There was no decreased likelihood of living with relatives among those with more generations in the United States.
