AnnotationThis paper describes the rationale and objectives of a research project, RPIRSE (Residential proximity, intergenerational relations and support of the elderly) which has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and was carried out during 1983 and the first half of 1984. The overall objective is to investigate the relationships between the relative geographical locations, or the distance of separation, of family members, and the nature, intensity and quality of their interaction, with special reference to the support of older people and households by their children. The research is intended as a contribution to both social gerontology and social geography. (RH).
