Claims That Retirement Improves Health.
Ekerdt, David J.; And Others
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n2 p231-36 Mar 1983
Compared men who claimed that retirement improved their health (N=114) with men who claimed no effect (N=149). Results showed that retrospective claims of good effects were not corroborated by a corresponding longitudinal, pre- to post-retirement improvement in self-reported health except among men whose retirement reduced prior job strain.
