This chapter explores the living arrangements of middle-aged people in Latin America—people who survived the young adult years and have not yet entered old age. In a strict sense, middle age could be considered ages 35 to 49; since much of our discussion considers young adulthood as ending around age 30 (Chapter 5) and old age as beginning around age 60 (Chapter 7), however, I consider here the middle generation in the broad sense as being between 30 to 59 years of age. Since I also try to look at five-year age groups within this broader range, it is often possible to still consider the 30- to 34-year-old group as being young and the 50- to 54 and 55- to 59year-old groups as being old.
