Aging and Social Integration: A Data-Driven Learning Guide

Summary

Well-being at older ages is of major concern to social scientists, and social integration appears to play a key role in well-being.

Social integration can be generally understood as the presence of strong social ties, or roles, which connect individuals with other individuals or groups. For this exercise, social integration will be operationalized two ways: living alone or with others and community participation.

The goal of this exercise is to explore the ways in which age, social integration, and well-being are related. Crosstabulation and comparison of means will be used.
