Health and the Amish: A Bibliographical Review.
Ellero, Nadine P.
The Amish, who came to North America from Europe in the 1700s and 1800s, and settled primarily in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New York, and Ontario, Canada, have attracted much attention and interest, particularly in the area of health care. The purpose of this bibliography is to guide the investigator toward the principal sources that cover the area of health and the Amish. It is by no means comprehensive, but the attempt was made to completely cover 1980 to 1989. During the compilation of this document, five major areas of exploration became evident and comprise the five major sections of this bibliography. These are: (1) general works (4 items); (2) health care practices and attitudes (15 items); (3) medical studies (82 items); (4) psychological studies (35 items); and (5) population studies (20 items). This listing includes monographic works, journal articles, Ph.D dissertations, reports, papers presented at symposia, government documents, and audio-visual materials. (JB)
