Study of Urban American Indian Aging. Final Report.
Kramer, B. Josea; And Others
Little is known about urban American Indian elders, although most American Indians live off reservations in the nation's cities. Accordingly, this research project compiled information about these older Americans from the following databases: (1) results of academic and applied research; (2) Management Information System (MIS) reports of service providers in selected urban areas with significant American Indian populations; (3) surveys of selected urban American Indian organizations; and (4) results or data from federally funded demonstration projects which have targeted or incidentally served this population. The project produced a comprehensive research database which includes three topical bibliographies; demographic data; and documented needs for support services, availability and access to support services, and sociocultural factors which influence service delivery and use. The final report also identifies research gaps and recommends a national research agenda on aging among urban American Indians. This report also recommends policy and practices to increase access and availability of support services to older urban American Indians. (Author/TE)
