The Age-by-Race Gap in Health and Mortality in the Older Population: A Social Science Research Agenda.
Gibson, Rose C.
Gerontologist, v34 n4 p454-62 Aug 1994
Notes that subdividing the age group 65 and over into finer age groups unmasks race differentials in mortality and morbidity that often favor blacks in the older age groups. Describes the unusual phenomena; proposes systematic research program to explain them; and discusses existing data sets for their analysis. (Author/NB)
