International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v28 n1 p37-51 1989
Examined sibling relationship in old age. Data from interviews with 30 older men and 30 older women with at least one living sibling revealed five types of relationships. Each type reflected discrete pattern of instrumental support, emotional support, and contact; and different degrees of closeness, envy, resentment, approval, and involvement with sibling. (Author/NB)
