Abstract
The aging of population is a serious problem in China. One-child policy leads the problem of supporting old people in single-child family to heated debate. Whether the elderly live with their children is related to elderly’s life and affection need. Through analyzing data from the 2011 wave of CHARLS, this research examines the determinants of living arrangements among Chinese elderly--old by distinguishing the children by gender. The results show that child’s gender of the elderly in one-child-family is key factor of resident arrangement. In general, without mate living together, high education, and having own income decrease the odds of co—residing. Having ADL disability, a higher household income, homeownership and preferring to live with others increase the likelihood of co-residing. Under this circumstance, government needs to formulate a preferential endowment policy for parents in one-child-families; society should construct old-age service system and improve old-age support security. Eventually, Pension system can realize the combination among different endowment patterns.
