This paper investigates the changing pattern of intergenerational housing support between retired old parents and their children in Tianjin, and the legacy of public housing in shaping this pattern. It seeks to determine how this support depends on whether parents have previously been allocated public housing and, if so, on whether they have disposed of it or have continued to occupy it. this research suggests that households are not independent units in the housing market and that parents and children actively engage in mutual help. Therefore, it is important for policy-makers to take these activities into account when addressing the housing affordability issue
