The Activity Theory of Aging An Examination in the English Context

The Activity Theory of Aging An Examination in the English Context Abstract The activity theory of aging, originally constructed on the basis of American research and tested predominantly in the USA, asserts that an individual's life satisfaction is directly related to his degree of social interaction or level of activity. Using multiple regression analysis, this theory was examined with a sample of elderly people living in the South of England and found to be revelant in the English context. If applicable to the elderly population as a whole, the theory has important implications for social policy.

Abstract

Abstract The activity theory of aging, originally constructed on the basis of American research and tested predominantly in the USA, asserts that an individual's life satisfaction is directly related to his degree of social interaction or level of activity. Using multiple regression analysis, this theory was examined with a sample of elderly people living in the South of England and found to be revelant in the English context. If applicable to the elderly population as a whole, the theory has important implications for social policy. This content is only available as a PDF. © 1977 The Gerontological Society of America
