Grandparent caregivers in Hawai'i

Description:
This brief report provides an overview of the socioeconomic and health characteristics of grandparents in Hawai'i and extends our previous work highlighting the demographics of elderly residents in the state. First, we examine the share of the older adult population who report having any grandchildren in order to understand who can potentially be called upon to assist in the caregiving role. Next, we look at which older adults live with their minor-aged grandchildren, and among those, who are primarily responsible for their care. Ultimately, the report aims to shed light on socioeconomic and health characteristics of grandparent caregivers, concluding with a brief discussion of policy implications. (author abstract)
