SPRY Foundation - Setting Priorities for Retirement Years
Redefining Retirement: Research Directions for Successful Aging Among America's Diverse Seniors (2000)

A study into how different life-planning domains — financial security, health and wellness, mental health, and intellectual pursuits — are viewed by minority persons.

    Project Description:
    This study, which was published in March 2000, assessed the view of retirement by minority elders. A 16-question, open-ended qualitative questionnaire was used with 61 professionals working with African American, Asian and Pacific Islander, American Indian and Alaska Native, and Hispanic senior populations. From data collected through this survey, SPRY identified 13 research questions that focused on two concerns:
  • What diverse resources and solutions do minority elders need for Successful Aging?
  • Is there anything current government should do to have an impact on successful aging among minority elders?
