|Subject||age, caregiving, crosstab|
Today's middle-aged adults are often referred to as the "sandwich generation" because many will spend as much time caring for their aging parents as they did for their own children. As life expectancy rises and the elderly make up a larger proportion of the population, the need for care will also increase. However, caregiving is not exclusive to adult children and their aging parents. Other examples include parents caring for a disabled child or older adults caring for an ill spouse.
The goal of this exercise is to explore the characteristics and well-being of middle-aged caregivers. Frequencies, crosstabulation, and comparison of means will be used.
