Displacement due to Armed Conflict and Violence in Childhood and Older Adult Health: The Case of the Middle-income Country of Colombia,” by Mary McEniry, Rafael Samper-Ternent and Carlo Cano Guitierrez (CDE Working Paper 2018-03, April 2018, .pdf format, 43p.).

Abstract:

Large displacement of populations in developing economies due to internal armed conflict and violence is of international concern but there has been relatively little research on the long-term consequences of displacement on older adult health, in particular displacement during childhood. We examine displacement in the middle-income country of Colombia which experienced a large displacement of its population over the last 50-60 years due to internal armed conflict and violence. Using a national representative survey of older adults, SABE-Colombia (2014-2015, n=23,694), we estimate the degree to which displacement during childhood and adulthood relative to those never displaced is associated with health (obesity, chronic conditions, depression, cognition, stress, functionality, frailty, self-reported health), controlling for age, gender, SES, residence, other indicators of early life conditions (infections, nutrition, health, SES, family violence), and risky adult behavior (smoking, little exercise, no prevention, poor nutrition). We find that displacement during childhood is associated with higher risk of chronic conditions and stress; being displaced and having rheumatic fever during childhood increases the risk of heart disease. Displacement in adulthood and early life infections increase the risk of poor adult health but timing of displacement may also provide resilience to the effects of poor early life conditions.

Extended Family Living Among Elderly Women Aged 60+ in Brazil in 2010: Comparing Women Who Had or Did Not Have a Live Birth,” by Susan Devos (2018-10, 2018, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

This study looks at the extended family household living of elderly women aged 60+ in Brazil in 2010 (35.9 percent) by whether they had had a live birth using 2010 Brazilian census data (36.8 vs. 29.0 percent). It applies a binomial multivariate logistic model containing socio-demographic, socio-economic, and socio-geographic characteristics to the two groups of women both nationally and by broad income group. It decomposes the gap into propensity differences (118.9%) and compositional differences ( 23.5%).

The study found that many characteristics such as income had similar relations with the probability of extended family living among women who had or did not have a live birth. While basic income had a negative relation, receiving pension income among lower income elderly women had a positive relation. This finding was a possible side effect of the non-contributory pension, as a similar finding did not exist in other income groups. The major difference between the two fertility groups was that factors associated with a special ‘need’ for informal support (such as having a disability or being very old) were more important for the co-residence of women who had never had a live birth.

For both long-standing cultural as well as politico-economic reasons, Brazilians may expect a network of kin, not just biological children, to care for and sometimes share, residence with elderly family members AND they have developed a non-contributory pension program aimed at the very poor that enables old people to control and share resources within what may be extended family households.

Examining the Multigenerational Effects of Obesity, Overweight and Stunting in a Latin American Middle Income Country: The Case of Colombia,” by Mary McEniry, Carmen Elisa Florez, Renata Pardo, Rafael Samper-Ternent, and Carlos Cano-Gutierrez (CDE Working Paper 2017-07, 2017, .pdf format, 45p.).

Abstract:

Examining multigenerational effects on health in Latin American populations from grandparents to subsequent generations is a fruitful area for research. Many Latin American populations have experienced rapid demographic and nutritional changes across generations with possible consequences for older adult health and subsequent generations. Understanding the multigenerational effects of obesity – an important health concern internationally – and early life nutritional status on child stunting merits further consideration. Using comprehensive data collected on households and individuals throughout Colombia (ENDS, ENSIN), we examine differences in child health according to whether grandparents are living/not living in the household and the degree to which obesity and height in older generations predicts child obesity, overweight and stunting in multigenerational households. We find that households with children living with grandparents have a higher prevalence of child obesity and lower prevalence of stunting; junk food consumption is similar across all types of households. In multigenerational households, we find strong intergenerational associations between grandmother-mother obesity and mother-female child obesity (overweight), and strong multigenerational associations between (1) grandfather obesity and female child obesity and overweight; (2) grandmother obesity and male child overweight; and (3) grandparent height and child stunting, mediated by mother height. We conclude that grandparent proximity, family resources, and relationship to household head play an important role in child obesity, overweight and stunting. In spite of grandparent proximity, mother being present in the household is important in terms of child health. Puzzling gender patterns for obesity/overweight raises the possibility of additional multigenerational factors affecting child health.
