Intergenerational Family Resource Allocation Meeting Summary

Thursday, March 10, 2005 to Friday, March 11, 2005

Sponsored by NIA and NICHD. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together grantees of the Intergenerational Family Resource Allocation RFA to present projects to each other, discuss methodological and data collection issues, and create an interdisciplinary network of researchers doing work on intergenerational resource allocation. Other goals were to bring together researchers doing work related to children with those doing work in the aging field, so that the groups could be aware of each other; to familiarize economists with relevant work in child development and aging; and to ensure that the two major funding agencies in intergenerational resource allocation are "on the same page" in terms of topics of interest.
