Barer, Barbara M.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v38 n1 p29-40 1994
Analyzed data from San Francisco 85+ Study to examine gender differences in stressors faced in later life by 150 white men and women. Majority of subjects were women, high proportion of whom were unmarried, living alone, functionally impaired, and had reduced financial resources. Men had fewer decrements, were more independent, and exercised more control over their environment. (Author/NB)
