Alan de Brauw ()

No 20298, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This paper attempts to explain why some elderly in rural China live alone in relative poverty while others live with their children and are relatively well-off. It develops a theoretical model of intergenerational transfers specific to rural China and tests among competing hypotheses using cross-sectional data collected in 2000.
