Children’s obligation to support their elderly parents has a deep root in Thailand. However, the strength of this relationship is suspected to deteriorate due to population aging and socio-economic pressure along with technological progress. Family relations in an aged society in Thailand needs to be explored with evidence-base data. Hence, the study will examine (1) types of elderly parent-adult child relationships, (2) factors influencing types of relationships, and (3) impacts of types of relationship on well-being of the elderly parents. The data are from the fourth wave (2022) of the survey on Health, Aging, and Retirement in Thailand (HART). Elderly parents who had at least one living child 18 years or over and were non-residence with their adult children will be included in the study. Based on intergenerational solidarity model and the availability of data, the type and number of solidarity indicators will be selected and used in the latent class analysis (LCA) to develop a typology of elderly parent-adult child relationships. Then, we will conduct separate LCA parents’ age group. Next, multinomial logistic regression will be performed to analyze the influence of demographic and socio-economic characteristics on the intergenerational relationship types. Finally, multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) will be used to examine the impacts of types of relationship on physical and psychological well-being of the elderly parents. Family policies to improve the well-being of elderly parents and strengthen intergenerational relations will be suggested.
