New paper in Demography on childhood co-residence with grandparents and later life mortality in 19th century Liaoning using the CMGPD-LN

HKUST Social Science MPhil alumnae Xiaolu (Emma) Zang lead-authored a paper with me on childhood co-residence with grandparents and later life mortality in 19th century Liaoning using the China Multigenerational Panel Database-Liaoning (CMGPD-LN). The paper grew out of work she did while an MPhil student here at HKUST, and exploits the longitudinal depth of the CMGPD-LN to study how male childhood co-residence with parental grandparents was associated with mortality later in life.

The paper can be viewed here.

The CMGPD-LN is available for download at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) and this paper is just one example of the many potential applications of the data.
