2. Personal Support

AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001

After spiritual sources, the next most commonly mentioned sources of assistance are family and friends. Siblings, according to the data in table 33, top the list; 47 percent credit their brothers’ and sisters’ support efforts. Siblings seem particularly important to minority respondents. After siblings, adult children, friends, and other relatives each lend aid to roughly 30 percent of older boomers.
