Paul, E. J.; And Others
The major task of Drake University Pre-Retirement Center for the fiscal year 1968-69 continued to be the demonstration and evaluation of different methods of involving workers in retirement preparation activities. Recruitment was from three primary groups: business, government employees, and the community at large. The center also helped the community of Mason City, Iowa, to establish three groups: one from the community at large (28 participatns); one, industrial (15 blue collar); and the third, professional (31 teachers). Three studies were also conducted by center personnel. In one, based on 214 subjects, the age level at which preretirement planning results in greatest attitude and adjustment change was determined, using the Dugger Scale. The second, with 145 participants, concerned itself with retirement planning activities and attitude change resulting from participation in preretirement planning programs. The third, involving 368 subjects, determined the influence of certain personality characteristics in likelihood of change and what changes had occurred in expressed concerns, involvement, and attitudes.
