摘 要：In previous work Maurer-Fazio, et al (2011) found that prime-age women in urban China increased their labor force participation when they lived in the same house as their parents or parents-in-law. This project reverses the lens to consider the determinants of residency and labor force participation of older persons in both rural and urban China. It finds that the effect of coresidency on labor force participation of the older adult differs for urban and rural residence and between men and women. Urban older women’s labor force participation is shown to be unaffected by coresidence with their adult children, while coresidence increases older urban men’s labor force participation. In rural areas, coresidence has a very large negative effect on the labor force participation of both men and women elders. The reduction in coresidency rates between 1982 and 2000 are part of the explanation for the diverging labor force participation rates of urban and rural elders.
