Peterson, Candida C.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v36 n2 p129-38 1992-93
Administered quiz about positive and negative aspects of mental health in old age to 250 Australian adults (ages 17-81). Retirees scored lowest, with no significant differences among younger students versus nonstudents. Age was more important mediator of retirees' low scores than was gender, living with older person, or self-definition as retired. (Author/NB)
