Geertsen, H. Reed; Gray, Robert M.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 32, 4, 638-645, Nov '70
Data indicate that: (1) mothers characterized by high familism have a higher inclination to adopt the sick role than do other mothers; (2) mothers of two or more preschool children or with large families have a lower inclination to adopt the sick role; (3) a strong relationship between familism and inclination to adopt the sick role persists when controlling for the effects of preschool children and family size.
