This study investigated ethnic diversity and other influencing factors among Malaysian women in Peninsular Malaysia, in providing tangible support to their parents and parents-in-law. Increased needs of parents (or in-laws), and competing demands on the women’s resources (such as own offspring) were simultaneously examined. Data from the Women Sample of Malaysian Population and Family Survey (2004) was utilized. Tangible support was defined as either co-residing with parents (or in-laws), or financial/material transfers. Using logistic regression, we estimated the support to parents and parents-in-law separately. All possible pairwise interactions were tested using likelihood ratio test and Wald statistics, and significant interactions were added into each main effects model. Results revealed ethnic diversity in support. Malay women were more likely than Chinese and Indian women to support own parents. Support to parents-in-law was more conditional. Increased needs in parents influenced support, but this effect was conditional in support to parents-in-law. More offspring of women reduced support to parents only, while higher socioeconomic status of women increased support to both parents. Results also revealed that most divorcees co-resided with parents. Overall, most Malaysian women provide support to both sets of parents. Social policy should address opportunities for improving social mobility in women. More research is needed on exchanges between divorcees who co-reside with their parents.
