Phillips, Mark; Arber, Sarah; Ginn, Jay
Education and Ageing, v16 n2 p135-61 2001
Analysis of data on British midlife adults indicated that being out of the work force between age 50 and state pension age has a different impact on participation in physical activity according to class and gender. Highest levels of inactivity are found among the unemployed working class and relate to low levels of education, poor health, and negative attitudes of physical activity. (Contains 40 references.)
