Publication Abstract

Download PDF versionSchoeni, Robert F., Vicki A. Freedman, and Linda G. Martin. 2005. "Socioeconomic and Demographic Disparities in Trends in Old-Age Disability." TRENDS Report 05-01

Old-age disability rates among all major socioeconomic and demographic groups declined over the past two decades, but the magnitude of the fall was larger for those who have higher income, have more years of education, are married, and are younger. As a result, disparities in disability have increased. The causes of these developments are unknown, while the potential ramifications for social and personal well-being are substantial.
