Intergenerational Coresidence among Small Farmers in Brazilian Amazonia
VanWey, Leah K.; Cebulko, Kara B.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v69 n5 p1257-1270 Dec 2007
This article examines intergenerational coresidence among rural farm families near Santarem, Para, Brazil using survey data collected by the authors on 896 children whose parents live in 175 households on 150 farms. Married adult children, daughters, and the best educated are more likely to live off their parents' rural property (vs. on the property). Results support arguments that coresidence results from the interests of children rather than the control that parents exert over children. These results have implications for our understanding of intergenerational relations in the developing world and for the future development of similar areas.
