Economic transfers in cash and kind in Andalucian families

This papers deals with some aspects of the linkages between family solidarity and regarding the activity in Spain. Specifically, our interest is to check whether the provision of economic transfers from relatives and the position on the labor market of those who give and receive are related.
Data from this study are from the Survey of Family Networks in Andalusia, conducted in 2006 by the Statistical Institute of Andalusia. It examines, from a stratified random sample of 9985 cases, the configuration of family networks, the characteristics of individuals and a wide range of what could be driving on these channels: mainly affects, services and goods. We have limited aid from relatives who are not living in the same household.
The assets considered consist on heirlooms, gifts, monetary overtime, regular aid and monetary support to pay the regulars purchases of a home, payment housing, etc.

So, we have focused the analysis to the regular transfers in kind and cash. Do not forget that the aid to housing is one of the forms of intergenerational assistance more widely.
