Gerontologist, v37 n6 p804-16 Dec 1997
Explored gender and relationship differences in caregiving--for a spouse, parent, parent-in-law, other relative, or friend--among a sample of employed caregivers (N=2,174). Results revealed no gender differences in the provision of 7 of 13 caregiving tasks, but women devoted more time and were more likely to be primary caregivers. (RJM)
