Kalavar, Jyotsna M.
Educational Gerontology, v27 n6 p507-13 Jul-Aug 2001
College students (n=200) expressed their preferences for the ages of 13 service providers such as doctors, pilots, and mechanics. The mean age preferred was below 40. Except for barbers/beauticians, no gender differences were found. However, scores on the Fraboni Scale of Ageism showed that male students had more ageist attitudes. (SK)
