Measurement of Intergenerational Relations
This is the first systematic attempt to describe and measure family relationships between generations across the life-course. The authors report results of a research programme focusing on intergenerational solidarity within families, based on an unusual three-generation study. Theoretical, conceptual and measurement issues are also presented focusing on six dimensions of family interaction.
