White House Conference on Aging (Washington, D.C., November 30-December 3, 1981). Final Report. Volume 3: Recommendations, Post-Conference Survey of Delegates.
White House Conference on Aging, Washington, DC.
This third and last volume of the final report of the 1981 White House Conference on Aging presents the results of a post-conference survey of delegates and observers conducted to gain insight about participants' views of Conference recommendations. Part I of the volume presents a detailed description of the methodology of the survey (coding and analysis, and reliability analysis) and both the quantitative and qualitative analyses of the survey results. A detailed analysis is given of the most favored recommendations (i.e., elimination of all restrictions on older workers, expansion of home health care and in-home services, provision of tax credits for families who care for elderly relatives in their homes, organization of services for the elderly using the Older Americans Act network, and medicare reimbursement for preventive care and wellness maintenance) as well as the least favored recommendations, most of which relate to the control of inflation. Part II presents the recommendations from the 14 Conference committees along with a summary of the changes made in committee reports from previous printings. The appendices include the survey instrument and series of tables summarizing survey results by category of respondent. (MCF)
