Abstract or Summary
  • This project looks at the relationship between social value and health outcomes among elderly individuals. It looks at the World Values Survey for an international view on how different societies view the elderly populations and compares it to the life expectancy rates in those societies. This research also addresses the impact poverty can have on both social value and health outcomes. This research uses Symbolic Interactionism for a theoretical base. Based on the theory of Symbolic Interactionism, the way people interact with the elderly in society will help them construct their own identity as an aging human. Symbolic Interactionism would claim that there is a positive relationship between societal value and the health outcomes of the elderly and that in societies that place higher value on the aging, the elderly will be physically and mentally healthier and vice versa. This analysis found that when controlling for poverty there is a significant relationship between the societal value of the elderly and health outcomes.
