AnnotationResidential proximity, intergenerational relations and the support of the elderly (RPIRSE) is a research project supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), of which this survey was the principal instrument. Two subjects dominated this particular study of retired married couples: the structure and content of interaction with the couples' children; and the residential histories of the respondents, their children and grandchildren. This working paper also serves to record the strategy and problems of the field-work stage of the research, the design of the questionnaire, and the formulation of the coding scheme. A last objective is to explain the special procedures for recording and analysing residential histories, most of which will be familiar to geographers but not to social researchers. (RH).
