Version V1

This is a study from the 1960s that assessed the impact of menopause on function. One hundred European American, largely middle-class, women living in Chicago were intensively interviewed two separate times about life structure, values, and family/work involvements. The sample was approximately one-third peri-menopausal, one-third in menopause, and one-third post-menopausal.
