3. Résumé

«The illustrative results presented here, though limited in number, provide some idea of the potential and of the pioneering character of the Québec investigation of the domain of intergenerational forms of family solidarity. The biographic approach adopted for this survey has permitted us to articulate and explore several levels of the forms of temporality inherent to family solidarity. It has also allowed us to insert the dynamics of such forms into a relationship schema, that of an extended family circle, which goes well beyond the conventional statistic limits. We are in fact dealing here with a huge body of information that is still being analyzed. A collective work is currently being prepared, one that will offer a synthesis of the overall results of our investigation, and which will include the integration of qualitative data, both gathered from the main questionnaire and generated by the field survey of the subsample.» (p. 101)
