Contact with Friends in Later Life: Disentangling the Effects of Gender and Marital Status.
Hatch, Laurie Russell; Bulcroft, Kris
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n1 p222-32 Feb 1992
Used data from longitudinal Retirement History Study to compare widowed, divorced or separated, and never-married women and men aged 60 to 65 on 3 dimensions of friendship contacts. Results showed that contact with friends could not be distinguished solely by respondents' gender or marital status. Suggests that adequate attention must be paid to combined effects of these variables. (Author/NB)
