Peek, M. Kristen; O'Neill, Gregory S.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v52 n3 p207-29 2001
Considers race differences in the determinants of social support network characteristics using data from Established Populations for Epidemiological Studies of the Elderly. Focuses on the extent to which race differences in network dimensions are present and whether variations can be attributed to social structural positions held. Results indicate that several race differences persist even when controlling for social structural variables. (JDM)
