Religion, Aging, and Life Satisfaction: An Eight-Year, Three-Wave Longitudinal Study.
Markides, Kyriakos S.; And Others
Gerontologist, v27 n5 p660-65 Oct 1987
In a sample of older adults (N=230) interviewed in 1976, 1980 and 1984, examined evidence that older Mexican Americans and Whites turn increasingly to religion as they age, decline in health, and face death. Found little evidence that older adults turned to religion, or that religiosity was increasingly predictive of life satisfaction. (Author/ABL)
