Description
  • Abstract

    The objective of the project was to determine the potential impact of increasing home heating costs on the life style, health, and social well-being of target populations of the elderly in rural Michigan, particularly those having limited incomes. The project is a continuation of a prior study in which the University of Michigan Institute of Gerontology conducted data processing, statistical analysis, and data interpretation for the 1980 needs assessment survey of the Michigan Region VII Area Agency on Aging in Bay City, Michigan. This agency in Bay City serves a primary service area of fourteen counties and an over-60 population of about 90,000.
