Ethnic Differences in the Production of Informal Home Health Care.
White-Means, Shelley I.; Thornton, Michael C.
Gerontologist, v30 n6 p758-68 Dec 1990
Used national data to examine family choices in production of informal care for elderly family members among African-, German-, Irish-, and English-Americans. Findings suggest unique factors associated with each ethnic group's decision to provide care. Health care service provision and policy research that ignores ethnic diversity will be less effective in evaluating health care needs of elderly population. (Author/NB)
