Clark, Daniel O.
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p227-33 Apr 1992
Studied noninstitutionalized disabled elderly, finding that urban residents were more likely than rural residents to receive formal assistance in activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living. Rural residents were more likely to receive informal assistance and to receive more person days of informal assistance per week. No residence differences in unmet need for care were identified.
