NOTES: The sample consists of males aged 55–84 in 2007 of whom 1993 data are available and who had at least one living child in 1993. Dependent variable = 1 if the elderly was living with an adult child in 2007, 0 otherwise. Dummy variables for province of residence in 1993 are included in the regressions. Robust t statistics are in parentheses with significance at 10% (*), 5% (**), and 1% (***) indicated. Standard errors are corrected for clustering at the household level.
