Among 3,196 white respondents and black respondents aged 55 and older in the 1987-88 National Survey of Families and Households, almost all reported someone (usually adult children) that they could turn to in an emergency, but less than half received routine assistance. Among respondents currently needing support, over a third were receiving no informal assistance. (SV)
