Attitudes to Aging Questionnaires: Some Evidence for Potential Bias in Their Design.
Stuart-Hamilton, Ian
Educational Gerontology, v25 n2 p185-95 Mar 1999
Attitudes were assessed after 89 undergraduates were asked either five neutral questions, five questions on the economic welfare of older people, or five on elders' physical frailty. Economic questions resulted in significantly more negative views of the mental aspects of aging, suggesting that questionnaires may contain tacit sources of bias. (SK)
