Is Age Becoming Irrelevant? An Exploratory Study of Perceived Age Norms.
Zepelin, Harold; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v24 n4 p241-56 1986-87
Studied white and blue-collar men and women using a questionnaire seeking designation of the most suitable ages for various role transitions and age-related attributes. Comparisons with 1950s findings indicated loosening of the norms, but with continuing adherence to a prescriptive timetable and with persistent socioeconomic differences. Results challenge the notion of age-irrelevance. (Author/KS)
