Hong, Lawrence K.; Duff, Robert W.
Gerontologist, v34 n3 p347-52 Jun 1994
Examined why some widows were satisfied in retirement communities and some were not. Satisfied widows were more socially active and were the majority in the community. Widows and married differed in social interactions contingent on which group was in majority. Ratio of married to widows in community may lead to different social interaction in the two groups.
