Family ties and economic shocks (Master thesis)

Μητρογιώργου, Ευσταθία

The purpose of the present thesis is to examine the effects of economic crises on family ties. To study this survey data about family ties is collected through the EVS Longitudinal Data File 1981-2008 and data about economic shocks is constructed using the World Bank. The results reveal statistically significance in the relation between economic crises and family ties. Analytically, if an individual is exposed to an economic shock, he/she is more likely to have stronger family ties. Even though the thesis does not examine the mechanism, it is likely that this effect is caused by the fact that family may be the supportive network that a person needs in order to cope with emotional difficulties and economic issues.
