Studying Living Arrangements of the Elderly: Lessons from a Quasi Qualitative Case Study Approach in Thailand

Publication Abstract

PDF Knodel, John E., and Chanpen Saengtienchai. "Studying Living Arrangements of the Elderly: Lessons from a Quasi Qualitative Case Study Approach in Thailand." Elderly in Asia Report No. 98-48. 1 1998.

The present study explores aspects of living arrangements and how they relate to intergenerational support exchanges involving the elderly as revealed by a quasi-quali-tative case study approach. The goal is to point to out some of the challenges the investigation of this topic poses for measurement, particularly when it is to be based on surveys. Although the research is specific to Thailand, it is likely that many of the same issues would arise in studies of the elderly in other less developed countries, especially in Asia.

Dataset(s): An original listings of elderly in four communities and focused personal interviews.
