Markides, Kyriakos S.; Martin, Harry W.
Journal of Gerontology, v34 n1 p86-93 Jan 1979
Predictor variables examined are self-reported health, income, education, and an activity index. Health and activity emerge as strong predictors of life satisfaction, while income influences life satisfaction indirectly via activity. The importance of investigating direct and indirect effects of variables via path analysis is discussed. (Author)
