Assessing Attitudes toward the Elderly: Polizzi's Refined Version of the Aging Semantic Differential.
Polizzi, Kenneth G.
Educational Gerontology, v29 n3 p197-216 Mar 2003
Undergraduates (n=300) assessed adults aged 70-85 using a revised Aging Semantic Differential. Factor analyses indicated that addition of new adjective pairs and removal of old ones updated the instrument. Principal component analyses revealed four-factor structures for elderly men and elderly women, indicating gender differences in attitudes. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
