Coe, Richard D.
Gerontologist, v28 n4 p540-44 Aug 1988
Using data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, a dichotomy was found in the experience of poverty in the elderly years. In the first three years of poverty, exit probabilities were relatively high for escaping poverty, but after three years probabilities were extremely low. Found no racial differences. (Author/ABL)
