Bibliographical note

Abstract The change in household structure is a worldwide phenomenon that reflects demographic changes, social and cultural trends, and changing economic conditions. The purpose of this chapter is to explore the prevalence of multigenerational households among recent immigrants from Eastern Europe to Israel. The size of the household among these immigrants is smaller, on average, than the household size among native-Israelis, even though immigrants have a higher tendency to live in extended households.
