Summary
This data collection contains the responses to a 1968 National Senior Citizens Survey of 3,996 noninstitutionalized persons 65 years of age and older in a national sample of the continental United States. The primary emphasis of the survey was to determine the impact of environmental attributes on some aspects of aging, primarily life satisfaction, social relationships, and knowledge and use of services. Also of interest were the interrelationships among environment, social relationships, and morale. Administered with personal interviews, the survey focused on characteristics of the respondent's residential environment (e.g., physical characteristics of home and neighborhood, value of property, and work/retirement status), social relationships (e.g., organization memberships, family relationships, and number of activities involved in), morale (e.g., self-concept, stated happiest time of life, attitudes about the state of the world), and health (e.g., number of doctor visits in past year, number of times health status interfered with activities, and self rating of physical health). General demographic characteristics are also included
