Friendship and Disaffiliation Among the Skid Row Population
Rooney, James F.
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 1, 82-87, Jan 76

Analysis of social relationships of Philadelphia skid row residents upheld the theory of replacement. The loss of relationships, however, was more closely associated with length of residence in skid row than with age. (Author)
