Investigated changes in subjective age in 323 older Mexican Americans and Anglo Americans. Results showed those whose subjective age increased from young or middle-aged to old were generally less educated, older, and in poorer health. No significant differences were found between those whose subjective ages decreased or remained old. (JAC)
