Principal Investigator(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the characteristics and well-being of middle-aged caregivers. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include who gives and who receives care, which age groups are more likely to care for their parents, whether men and women are equally likely to be caregivers, and how caregiving may affect the well-being of caregivers.
