Reconceptualizing Retirement for Black Americans.
Gibson, Rose C.
Gerontologist, v27 n6 p691-98 Dec 1987
Examined subsample of nonworking older Black Americans (N=295) from the National Survey of Black Americans sample. Found four factors contributed significantly to respondents' unretired-retired status: indistinct line between lifetime and old age work patterns, view that occasional work is necessary, income from other than private pensions, and benefits that accrue from identifying as disabled rather than retired.
