Aim: 

To understand the relationship between both (a) the survival and (b) the co-residency of grandparents and their grandchildren’s mortality, based on the 1993 Gambia census.

Abstract: 

The principal aim of the proposed research is to understand the relationship between both the survival and the co-residency of grandparents and their grandchildren’s mortality based on the 1993 Gambia census. It will build on a preliminary descriptive analysis of grandparents and grandchildren to be published as part of a volume on African households edited by Etienne van de Walle, who is also the PI for the project.
