Symposium on MULTILINKS at the 64th annual scientific meeting of the Gerontological Society of America in Boston.

This report by Pearl Dykstra describes key findings from MULTILINKS. The key findings are examples of research where MULTILINKS has brought new and unique insights, and these pertain to macro and micro views of family constellations, East-West differences in family patterns, generational interdependencies, attitudes versus behaviour in families, and intergenerational policies versus regimes.

his deliverable contains the final report concerning the Multilinks database developed at WZB. Written by Chiara Saraceno and Wolfgang Keck.

Written by Arnstein Aassve, this report gives an overview of the technical aspects of the analyses implemented in the project. The report focuses on those papers that raise methodological issues from a statistical point of view.

Since the 1970s family formation patterns have been changing as the result of the emergence of unmarried cohabitation, the rise in divorce, the postponement of childbearing, and so forth. In this policy brief, Arnstein Aassve and Nicolas Robette try to understand the extent to which traditional family formation patterns persist and new ones are emerging.

In this fourth Multilinks Policy Brief, we illustrate the advantages of the GGS by focusing on diversity in partnerships, childlessness among women and men, and the generational structure of kin networks. This policy brief was written by Allan Puur, Luule Sakkeus, Niels Schenk, Asta Põldma and Pearl Dykstra.

The report briefly summarizes the fourth progress meeting held in Milano on March 25-26.

In this third Policy Brief, the assumptions on how welfare state arrangements might shape intergenerational family solidarity are summarized. Results of explicit tests of these assumptions are presented. The findings call for a more holistic and more differentiated perspective on the role of European welfare states in intergenerational transfers in families. This policy brief was written by Niels Schenk and Pearl Dykstra.

In this second Policy Brief, opinions of Europeans on the timing of retirement are presented and evaluated in the light of European-wide targets set in Stockholm and Barcelona to increase labour force participation of older adults. This focus on the opinions of Europeans on retirement supplements the largely economic perspective usually taken with regard to discussing retirement issues. This policy brief was written by Aat Liefbroer.

In this first Multilinks policy brief, the legal and policy frameworks regulating intergenerational obligations are selected and assembled for all EU 27 countries to offer a contextual basis for the comparative analysis of patterns of intergenerational relationships. This policy brief was written by Chiara Saraceno, Wolfgang Keck and Pearl Dykstra.
