Abstract

Longer life expectancies potentially translate into more years of intergenerational overlap, but this effect can be counterbalanced by the delay in the timing of grandparenthood. Grandparents are older today than in the past and it is therefore crucial to study their health, since it could affect the quality of intergenerational exchange. Applying the Sullivan method on Italian data from 1998 to 2016, disability-free grandparenthood at age 65 (period life expectancy as a grandparent free from disability) by gender is estimated, as well as the contribution of changes in mortality and grandparenthood-disability prevalence on the evolution on disability-free grandparenthood
