Logan, John R.; And Others
Social Forces, v71 n2 p451-67 Dec 1992
Interviewed 1,200 adults aged 40 and older to study age identity (labels reflecting self-perception in terms of age) and its relationship to well-being. Chronological age, poor health, and widow or divorce status are associated with older age identity. Having children is related to middle-aged identity. (KS)
