We started first at the age of 60 and we looked all the way up to the age of 100. In terms of all other causes that would affect your death risk in these old ages, having a child is not among the greatest ones. But it is still a 1.5% difference [for 90-year-old men] which is still substantial.feedback

Karin Modig said, “Having children is associated with increased longevity, particularly in an absolute sense in old age. Support from adult children to ageing parents may be of importance for parental health and longevity. At old age, the stress of parenthood is likely to be lower and instead, parents can benefit from social support from their children. In addition, parents have on average more healthful behaviours than childless individuals. In Sweden and the other Nordic countries, there is an overall trend of increasing levels of childlessness across birth cohorts.”. Karin Modig has been quoted a grand total of 4 times in 2 articles.
