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.

Greeting and Response: A New Look at the Living Arrangements of Older Americans using Multistate Life Tables,” by James Raymo, Isabel Pike, and Jersey Liang (WP 2017-03, July 2017, .pdf format, 32p.).

Abstract:

Existing research on the living arrangements of older Americans is limited in that it pays little attention to geographic proximity to children (proximate residence) and uses data from crosssectional or short panel surveys. We address these limitations by using data from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) over a period of 14 years (1998-2012) to construct multistate life tables. These analyses allow us to describe the lives of older Americans between ages 65 and 90 in terms of the number of expected years of life in different living arrangements – reflecting both mortality and living arrangement transitions across later life. By conducting analyses separately by sex, race/ethnicity, and educational attainment, we provide a comprehensive descriptive portrait of sociodemographic differences in living arrangements across older ages in the U.S. Results show that a large proportion of older Americans lives near, but not with, their adult children and that the prevalence of different living arrangements is relatively stable across older ages although changes in living arrangements are common. We also show that overall life expectancy is not strongly related to living arrangements at age 65 and that living arrangement specific life expectancy differs markedly by race/ethnicity and educational attainment. We discuss the potential implications of these differences for access to support and the exacerbation or mitigation of inequalities at older ages.
