Collette-Pratt, Clara
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 2, 193-197, Mar 76
Utilizing a semantic differential measurement technique and a sample of college students (N=123), middle-aged adults (N=90), and elderly adults (N=108), this study investigated devaluation of old age in comparison to age in general. All age groups devalued old age. The most consistent predictor of devaluation was negative attitudes toward poor health. (Author)
