Title: Life conditions for the elderly in the household sphere: aging and transferees in Montevideo-Uruguay
Author: Guidotti-Gonzalez, CA
Aidar, T
Abstract: This work outlines the framework of the family configurations in which the elderly population of Montevideo lives as well as the transfers they are involved in. The main objective is to investigate how older people, who are recipients of a broad social protection system and have an economic situation relatively better than the younger groups, participate in the household intergenerational distribution dynamics. In order to achieve this goal, we elaborated a characterization of the households of the elderly, considering the life conditions, resources and service transfers in which they participate. The initial hypotheses is that socioeconomic inequality is the key to understand the transfer dynamics intra- and inter-households.
