Description
  • Abstract

    The Family Exchanges Study (FESI) began in 2008 conducted by the Institute for Survey Research at Temple University. The original "target" or core sample was recruited from African American and White respondents aged 40-60 living in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties--Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery. To be eligible for the study, respondents had to have at least one living parent and one living offspring over 18 years of age. Temple University sought to recruit the parents, spouse, and up to three offspring over 18 years of age into the study. All target, parent, and spouse surveys were conducted by telephone. Offspring were given the option of completing the survey by telephone or web. For the Wave 2 data collection, the Survey Research Center at Pennsylvania State University attempted to contact all FESI respondents again, as well as collect updated information for spouses/romantic partners, parents, and up to 4 age-eligible offspring. The survey instruments were drawn largely from the first wave of data collection. This collection includes eight data files. These data files include five main study datasets: target, spouse, spouse without target, parent, and offspring. This collection also includes three diary datasets: target diary, parent diary, offspring diary. For each participant, there are data related to relationships with other family members, perceptions of family members, and views on key social issues. Demographic information includes gender, marital status, education level, religion, age, race, ethnicity, and employment status.
  • Abstract

    The purpose of the Family Exchanges Study was to expand knowledge of inter-generational transfers by addressing the psychological processes underlying family support. Of specific interest were how and why individuals choose between self, spouse, parent, and children, as well as how they choose among multiple parents or step-parents and children in allocation of their time, emotional energy, and material assets. The study explored how people's motives differ with regard to tangible and non-tangible allocations in both the present and future time frames. The primary purpose of this study was to follow up with respondents from the first wave of data collection in order to determine how support is provided across generations within families.

Adults aged 40-60 living in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties -- Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery -- with at least one living parent and one living offspring over 18 years of age. Smallest Geographic Unit: Other
Sampling
All surviving respondents from the original panel were eligible for the follow-up wave. In addition, the Survey Research Center at Pennsylvania State University recruited any new spouses or romantic partners and additional offspring over aged 18, for a total of 4 offspring per target respondent. Family members who were eligible in the original panel study but did not participate were also recruited into the follow-up study. There were a total of 1734 contact records1 provided to the Survey Research Center at Pennsylvania State University. Overall, 97.8 percent of the Wave 1 respondents had provided explicit consent for additional follow-up.
