Rape and the Elderly: An Initial Analysis.
Kerschner, Paul A.
This paper presents some preliminary data on rape and older women as a means for informing the interested in gathering data in their own geographic and/or socio-economic areas. Utilizing data from the 1970 census in Los Angeles, the author attempts to paint a broad-brush picture of this situation in a large metropolitan city. In addition, he hopes to raise some questions concerning this particular crime and age group, questions which need answers and for which he seeks the reader's assistance and reflection. (Author/VG)
