Isaacs, Leora W.; Bearison, David J.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v23 n3 p175-94 1986
Children's prejudice against the aged was studied in terms of their responses to an attitude scale and measures of their social interaction with aged compared to nonaged confederates. Findings indicated significant levels of ageist prejudice among six- and eight-year-olds but not in four-year-olds. Eight-year-olds had highest prejudice scores. (Author/ABB)
