Abstract

Intergenerational conflict is endemic and has substantial individual, familial, and societal consequences. However, few studies discussed the influences of the neighborhood environment on intergenerational conflicts among Asian immigrant families. To fill this research gap, the proposed study examined links among neighborhood environment, cultural orientation, parenting stress, social support, and intergenerational conflicts. Two datasets were used in this secondary data analysis: 2011–2017 Study of Asian American Families (SAAF) and the 2016 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates (N = 849). Structural equation model was conducted. Findings suggested that cultural orientation, social support, and parenting stress fully mediated the influences from the neighborhood environment on Intergenerational conflict in Asian immigrant families.
