Elder Care as Family Labor: The Influence of Gender and Family Position.
Dwyer, Jeffrey W.; Seccombe, Karen
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n2 p229-47 Jun 1991
Using nationally representative sample of noninstitutionalized impaired elderly people (n=813), found that husbands (when compared to wives) and daughters (when compared to sons) reported spending more time and performing greater number of caregiving tasks. Results suggest that family position may confound interpretations regarding association between gender and family caregiving. (Author/NB)
