Older Women: The Economics of Aging
Anne J. Stone and Jennifer Griffith (1998)
Older Women: The Economics of Aging is a comprehensive, 86-page report on the economic status of older women in the United States-from household and personal income and the older single woman's annual expenditures to economic security and labor force participation. Older Women provides the reader with the tools to understand the status of older women and how older women compare with older men and with women in other age groups. The new Older Women includes a number of tables and figures allow-allowing readers to form their own conclusions about whether-or by how much-the econom-ic situation of older women today differs from the situa-tion of older women when the last edition was published 14 years ago, or-in some cases-even a full generation ago. This edition also includes a discussion of the policy implications of the statistics and trends presented in the report, with particular reference to the future of Social Security and the private pension system.
