With his PhD dissertation, Daniël Reijer provides insight into skipped-generation households in rural Zambia. Skipped-generation households are households where the younger generation and their older guardian(s), mostly grandparents, live together without any members of the middle generation. The changes in the dependencies between the young and the old are the result of high mortality among middle-aged adults, the majority of which can be attributed to HIV.
