Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the ways in which age, social integration, and well-being are related. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include whether older adults are more or less likely to be socially integrated than others, which age groups are most likely to live alone, volunteer, or participate in community organizations, and whether older adults who do participate in the community experience less loneliness than those who do not participate.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at Aging and Social Integration.
