Échantillon/Matériau : The study uses «the Longitudinal International Study of Adults (LISA) data which consists of 3 waves (2012-2016). [...] The sample was drawn in 2011 by selecting dwellings from 2011 Canadian Census of Population data, and is therefore a representation of the population at that time.» (p. 79) «The baseline interviews collect information from approximately 34,000 Canadians age 15 years and over from more than 11,000 households. However, only wave 2 and wave 3 contain information on caregiving activities.» (p. 80) «The analysis is conducted on individuals aged 45 and over.» (p. 81)
Instruments : Questionnaire
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
The results of the third study show that «[p]roviding care to an elderly parent is positively and significantly associated with the probability of retirement in Quebec, Ontario and BC [British Columbia]. However, providing care to a parent, who co-resides or lives at a close distance to the child, increases the probability of retirement of children caregivers significantly in Quebec and BC only. In-home caregiving in Quebec increases the probability of retirement of the child by 10.5% then their counterpart out-of-home caregivers and non-caregivers. In-home caregiving in BC increase the probability of retirement of about 19% relative to out-of-home caregivers and non-caregivers.» (p. 99) Overall, «in regions like BC, Quebec and Ontario , where home care expenditures as a percentage of health care expenditures is lower than the national average, parental caregivers are more likely to completely or partially retire.» (p. 103)
