Organizational Age Norms: Why Is It So Hard to Know When You See One?
Lawrence, Barbara S.
Gerontologist, v36 n2 p209-20 Apr 1996
Explores theoretical and measurement issues that have impeded age norm studies. Conducts a study of age norms using data from three work organizations. Results show that age norms can be measured across organizations; sharing of age norms increases with organization stability; and age norms influence behavior and are social, not individual, phenomenon.
