Example text

For example, intracohort increases in inequality notwithstanding, the policies and programs of the last half century have clearly brought a historical trend of decreasing poverty and income inequality in income among the aged (Clark, Maddox, Schrimper, & Sumner 1984; Pampel, 1981). The question of how diversity among adults is best explained gives a new level of salience and even urgency to cross-national research. If life-course patterns of increasing heterogeneity appear much the same in all societies (or in all segments of a given society) and in disparate historical periods, this would suggest that variation in social conditions has little influence on the development of aged diversity and that the micro-level, accentuation model is appropriate.
