Cohort Change in Images of Older Adults, 1974-1981.
Ferraro, Kenneth F.
Gerontologist, v32 n3 p296-304 Jun 1992
Examined images of older people held by adults of all ages in 1974 (n=4,254) and 1981 (n=3,427). Cohort changes in such perceptions over time were examined. Multivariate analysis indicated that social class and health status evaluations of older adults declined between the two surveys, principally because of the assessment by more recent cohorts.
