Abstract

Cross-society comparisons provide an important way to gain insights into spatial variations in intergenerational relations, but have been relatively underused in research on aging. In this paper, we take advantage of differences between rural Bangladesh and Indonesia in the nature of family organization to examine the roles that sons and daughters play in intergenerational exchange.
