Health Behavior of Elderly Hispanic Women: Does Cultural Assimilation Make a Difference?
Marks, Gary; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v77 n10 p1315-19 Oct 1987
In a study of 630 elderly Hispanic women it was found that four cultural factors associated with assimilation were not strong predictors of preventive health behavior. These findings agree with those of other studies. Stronger predictors for Hispanics are sociodemographic factors and access and availability of health services. (VM)
