intergenerational family transfers
Intergenerational Family Transfers
  • Intergenerational familial support as social insurance
  • Assistance can take many forms
  • Changing societies, changing families and ageing populations are influencing the nature of family support between generations
  • Growing number of seniors now and into the future often seen as an economic and service burden…but what is the reality?

changing population and family structures
Changing Population and Family Structures

Proportion of Australian Population Aged Under 15 years and 65 years +, from 1901 to 2006

Declining Fertility rate + increasing life expectancy means more older people, fewer younger people

The rise in the proportion of the older population is also indicative of a rise in lone person households in coming years

Smaller families mean fewer sources of support for older people, particularly those living alone

outline of the research
Outline of the Research
  • How much time is given to, and received from, different generations by older people and what is the economic value of this?
  • What demographic and socio-economic attributes influence the transfers of time and money between generations?
  • How much money is given to, and received from, different generations by older people?
  • What motivates the older generation to make time and/or money transfers?
  • What are transfers used for by the younger generation?
  • Are time and money substituted for each other and what influences the substitution?

Giving and receiving practical help
  • 61% provide practical help to family members

Median amount given,

5 hours/week/household

  • 30% receive practical help from family members

Median amount received,

other factors influencing time transfers
Other Factors Influencing Time Transfers
  • Children: respondents with no children were the least likely to both give and receive both practical and financial help
  • Siblings: a smaller proportion of people with no living siblings provide help to family members compared to other groups but...
  • Marital status: Respondents who were separated divorced were more likely to give practical help to other family members but....

the value of giving for the australian economy
The Value of Giving for the Australian Economy

Approximately 36 Billion per annum is given in practical help to other family members by people aged 50 years and over in Australia, this compares to:

  • A national government annual expenditure on health  in 2010 of $21 billion;
  • The national government annual expenditure on education  in 2010 of $8.5 billion, or the
  • National government annual expenditure on defence  in 2010 of $19.4 billion.

It can also be compared to:

  • Value of production in the mining industry: $25 billion
  • Value of retail industry: $14.6 billion
