Trends in the Health of the Aged.
Palmore, Erdman B.
Gerontologist, v26 n3 p298-302 Jun 1986
An analysis of data from the National Health Interview Survey shows consistent and substantial improvements in the relative health of the aged from 1961-81. Explanations for this trend include cohort effects, Medicare and Medicaid, and other programs for the aged. Increasing health service needs should be partially offset by this trend. (Author/ABB)
