Part of the International Studies in Population series
Intergenerational research is crucial in understanding long term demographic trends.
This book examines the ways kinship affects demographic behavior, including mortality patterns to determine the influence of fertility patterns, the contribution of parents' longevity, and the affects of a family history of disease.
It emphasizes the importance of studies that include and compare other factors related to social organization with information on multi-generational families.
