Project description

In Norway as in most other countries, long term care for elderly people is supplied both by the familiy as well as the public represented by the municipalities. In this project we will study empirically to what extent labour market participation and income of grown up children are affected by their parents' need for long term care, and how this will change when their parents' die. We will also study how this is affected by the organisation of long term care in the municipalities, e.g., whether they supply care in institutions or in private homes. This is a joint project with FAFO (Heidi Gautun).
