We address two questions: to what extent does geographical distance to parents, siblings and children living outside the household influence receiving support from them? And to what extent does the availability of other network members living closer play a part in receiving support? We use the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study and logistic regression models of receiving support from parents, children and siblings. The results indicate a strong impact of distance on support from family members, particularly from siblings and fathers but less so from mothers and children. Particularly siblings, sons and mothers are more likely to provide support if there are no other family members living closer.
