Longer Life but Worse Health? Measurement and Dynamics.
Rogers, Andrei; And Others
Gerontologist, v30 n5 p640-49 Oct 1990
Challenges the pessimistic conclusions of recent studies of longevity and health among the elderly which claim positive trends in prolongation of life have not been matched by extension of healthy life. Examines conceptual issues related to measurement and dynamics of mortality-disability. Uses data from the 1986 Longitudinal Study of Aging to illustrate points. (Author/ABL)
