The Impact of Subjective Age and Stigma on Older Persons
Ward, Russell A.
Journal of Gerontology, 32, 2, 227-232, Mar 77
This study investigated the impact of shifts in age identification by older people (N=323) from "middle-aged" to "elderly" within the context of the labeling theory of deviance. Age identification was unrelated to attitudes toward old people and the label "elderly" did not affect self-esteem through any "gate-keeping" process. (Author)
