Screened community adults (N=1,300) 60 years of age or older for depressive symptomatology. Found a gap between significant depressive symptoms and major depression. Suggests that traditional Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM III) depressive categories do not capture most depressed older adults in community populations. (Author/ABB)
