Is There a Gray Peril?: Retirement Politics in Florida.
Rosenbaum, Walter A.; Button, James W.
Gerontologist, v29 n3 p300-06 Jun 1989
Surveyed local government officials and obtained socioeconomic data about local government regarding 103 municipalities and 62 counties in Florida to test 3 hypotheses concerning political impact of retirement migration on the Sunbelt. Findings suggest that aging persons, although politically active, are seldom involved in organized advocacy or political opposition to local policies that largely benefit other interests. (Author/NB)
