We modify the four-dimensional N=1 linearized supergravity in a way that components in each superfield are completely identified with fields in the full superconformal formulation. This identification makes it possible to use both formulations of supergravity in a complementary manner. It also provides a basis for an extension to higher-dimensional supergravities, which will be useful for model-building in the brane-world context.
