Intergenerational Transition and Its Influence on Health of the Elderly in Rural China:A Study of Gender Differences across Generations

SONG Lu1 LI Shu-zhuo2(1.2.School of Public Policy and Management,Xian Jiaotong University,Xian 710049,Shaanxi Province,China)  
Using data from the baseline and follow-up surveys of "Welfare of the Elderly in Anhui Province,China" conducted in 2001 and in 2003 respectively by the Institute of Population and Development Studies of the Xi'an Jiaotong University,this paper adopts the logistic model to identify gender differences in the effect of intergenerational transition on health of the Chinese rural elderly.The results show that while the increase of supports from children to the elderly worsens the health of elder men,the increase of financial supports from the elderly to children and the increase of emotional supports between the elderly and their children better the health of older men.As for older women,though the increase of support from the elderly to children and emotional support better the health of elder women,the financial supports from children to the elderly worsens the health of elder women.The results indicate that the intergenerational exchanges of support between the elderly and their children improve the reciprocity of relationships between the generations,which better the health of the elderly.Increasing children's economic and material support may,however,lead to deterioration of health among the elderly.
