Duffy, Mary E.; MacDonald, Ellen
Gerontologist, v30 n4 p503-09 Aug 1990
Investigated relationships among demographics, self-esteem, health locus of control, health promotion activities, perceived health, and functional health ratings in 179 older adults. Discovered meaningful and significant relationships suggesting that exercise and nutrition may be critical health promotion activities associated with better scores on five functional dimensions. Compared to younger subjects, those 85+ had significantly higher reported exercise scores. (Author/NB)
