Lester, David; Becker, DeAnne M.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v26 n3 p219-22 1992-93
A questionnaire on attitudes toward death first administered to college students in 1935 was administered to college students in 1991. The students in 1991 showed much greater concern with and anxiety over death than did students in 1935. Cancer and car accidents remained causes of death most often anticipated in 1991 as in 1935 and 1970. (Author/NB)
