Stress in Racial Differences in Self-Reported Health among the Elderly.
Krause, Neal
Gerontologist, v27 n1 p72-76 Feb 1987
Examined whether self-rated health of older Blacks was worse than that of older Whites and, if so, whether the life stress perspective could explain racial differences in perceived health. Blacks perceive their health as worse than Whites. Chronic financial strain was associated with ill health among Whites; network crisis events were related to poor health among Blacks. (Author/NB)
