Socioeconomic Disparities of Participation and Time Use among Disabled Older Americans

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Kenzie Latham, Philippa J. Clarke

Daily diaries present the unique opportunity to identify how participation and time use varies by socioeconomic status (SES) among disabled adults. Disabled older adults with higher levels of SES may be at an advantage concerning activity participation and time use because they have greater access to important facilitators such as assistive technology. Utilizing the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) supplementary Disability and Time Use (DUST) daily diary data, we plan to employ time use analysis to estimate participation and time use among disabled U.S. adults 60 years or older. Identifying socioeconomic differences in participation and time use among disabled older adults is an important step in understanding the sources of disparities within the disabled community. A better understanding of the factors that facilitate independence and participation among adults aging with activity limitations could aid in the development of interventions aimed at reducing participation and time use disparities through the use of assistive technology and other facilitators.
