The work is devoted to the analysis of socio-demographic characteristics affecting the dynamics of the transfer of downward private intergenerational transfers from parents to adult children, as well as a comparative analysis of socially-demographic portraits of parents of different age groups. This paper reflects the experience of existing theoretical studies that allow us to formulate actual hypotheses of empirical research of the master's thesis. Master's work uses data from the international panel study "Parents, children, men and women." The selection of respondents is made according to the age characteristics of the parents-donors of intergenerational transfers. The study revealed that the older the parents, the more varied the types of intergenerational support (a significant part of the aid in the form of instrumental transfers is added to the material transfers). Based on the work highlighted two socio-demographic portrait of the parents-donors of intergenerational transfers. The main difference between the parents-donors of the second group aged 55 to 69 from the first (the age of the parents of this group is 40-54 years) is determined such indicators as a higher level of education, allocation of a larger amount of money from their individual income, residence in the city , The presence of grandchildren. In assessing, the likelihood of parents providing intergenerational support from basic socio-demographic and economic indicators confirmed the positive significance of such characteristics as the short distance from their adult children, regular meetings with children, and the individual income of donor parents. It also increases the likelihood of assisting donor parents by simultaneously supporting other types of intergenerational transfers when considering each type of assistance separately. The indicator of the state of health made a negative impact on the probability of parents providing intergenerational assistance to their adult children.
