Activity

Poverty Status, Race/Ethnicity, Gender, and Disability among the Elderly part of SSDAN:Activities
A primary goal of long term care delivery systems is to assist aged individuals with functional needs. Therefore, the need and type of long term care will be influenced by the functional disability of the population served. Functional disability in terms of mobility, self-care, and work limitations is influenced by social characteristics. This module introduces students to the relationships between age, race/ethnicity, gender, poverty, and disability. It also provides students with an opportunity to use census data to gather information about a target population.
