Dorfman, Lorraine T.
Educational Gerontology, v21 n7 p653-69 Oct-Nov 1995
A survey of retired rural adults (252 men, 199 women) found that 25% of women and 28% of men rated their health fair or poor; 21% of women and 17% of men rated their financial status less than adequate. Retired women reported significantly lower incomes, more contact with relatives, and greater participation in organizations and volunteer work. (SK)
