The Perils of Single Life in Contemporary Japan.
Goldman, Noreen
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p191-204 Feb 1993
Uses different data sources to explore explanation for why levels of mortality experienced by single Japanese are so high compared with those of married Japanese or of singles elsewhere. Presents evidence that marriage is likely to have been and probably continues to be more selective with regard to underlying health characteristics in Japan than elsewhere. (Author/NB)
