dc.description.abstractThere is a growing awareness of the social strains accompanying economic growth in the People's Republic of China, such as the lagging development of the social protection system as the population ages. Using estimates from the National Transfer Accounts database, Qiulin Chen, Karen Eggleston, and Ling Li describe changes in life cycle public transfers; interhousehold transfers; and intrahousehold transfers for education, health care, and other support; and discuss the main challenges that demographic change poses for the People's Republic of China's pension and health care systems. They argue that demographic change and its interaction with family behavior and social policies will strongly shape both future economic growth - through savings and investment decisions, labor supply, and productivity - and the sustainability of social support systems.
