Modernization and Status Change Among Aged Men and Women
This study investigates the differences between the relationship between elderly occupational status and modernization for men and women. Consonant with previous findings , it finds that economic development is associated with relative losses of elderly men in professional and technical occupations. Augmenting those findings, however, it finds an even stronger association between development and such losses for women. In accounting for the differences, several explanations are advanced and tested, using data from fifty-one nations.
