Home Economics Research Journal, v17 n2 p153-64 Dec 1988
A study examined the retirement planning of women between 40 and 55 years of age within the framework of family resource management. Personal characteristics inhibiting retirement planning were fear of financial risk, lack of perceived personal control, unwillingness to take risks, lack of belief in control of one's own life, and math anxiety.
