Gender Differences in Adult Child Contact among Black Elderly Parents.
Spitze, Glenna; Miner, Sonia
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p213-18 Apr 1992
Examined sex differences in level of contact with children among African-American middle-aged and elderly persons (n=575). Men, especially those living alone, experienced fewer visits and calls per year than did women. Difference was not explained by controls for variables measuring needs, resources, and child availability. Process determining contact with children appeared highly similar for men and women.
