In an interview, probably on PBS, a few years ago a researcher said that it takes 3 daughters to maintain parents in their home. Sons usually don’t provide care—which makes China’s emphasis on having a boy a bit suspect. Many of us had the same feeling when a family with 3 children to rent a unit. We had 20 children including a cluster of loud, active 10 year olds. How many children can we live with. But over time it has really sorted itself out. People in their 50s and 60s are the most active workers here. They have skills and are ready to put their energy into building community. They aren’t distracted so much by their children. But in terms of fairness, not siphoning off the perfect people, what are the percentages in the general population?
