This study investigates patterns in private intergenerational support using data sets from household surveys from various countries around the world. The focus of the proposed work is the relationship between public pensions and private old–age support. The goal is to build a database of country–specific information about private intergenerational transfers that can be used in conjunction with other data sets that are focused on international comparisons.
