Family background and cultural lifestyles: Multigenerational associations

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

We analyze the association between family background and cultural lifestyles in three generations.
We use indicators of parents’ and grandparents’ economic, cultural, and social capital to capture family background.
We identify four cultural lifestyles in the grandchild generation emphasizing omnivorous, middlebrow, popular, and low cultural consumption.
Grandparents’ capital is associated with grandchildren's lifestyles both directly and indirectly via parents’ capital.
Among the three forms of capital, grandparents’ cultural capital is most strongly associated with grandchildren's lifestyles.
