- The purpose of this research is to analyze the factors affecting geographical proximity with elderly
parents of married women aged 30~40s in South Korea. Using the KLoWF 2010 data, results from
multinomial logistic regression analyses show that the factors may vary in terms of needs and
resources of young couples as well as their elderly parents. We also find that there are different
mechanisms through husband-side elderly parents and wife-side ones. It is worth noting that the
cohabitation and adjacent residence between the young couples and their elderly parents are
determined from the different reasons.
