Staats, Sara; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v37 n3 p191-204 1993
Self-reports of 250 persons over age 50 confirmed increasing bias toward reporting more youthful age as one ages. Optimistic perceptions of health were maintained in older subjects. Results from two subsets of sample (n=48) indicated that youthful and optimistic bias occurred both in older persons with poorer/failing health and in persons in stable/good health. (Author/NB)
