Abstract

Are older people less angry I propose that age differences in roles, personal and social circumstances, the sense of control, health, and socio-emotional outlook explain the association. I use data from a 1981 representativesample of 951 physically disabled individuals from Southwestern Ontario, Canada and a 1996 national probability sample of 1,450 U.S. respondents-the General Social Survey (GSS). Both surveys show a negative association between age and anger: lit the Ontario sample older people ave more likely to occupy widowhood and retirement roles, live with fewer people, have less interpersonal estrangement, and have fewer life events; these characteristics explain their lower anger: Also, were it not for their lower control and worse health older people in the Ontario sample would report even lower angel:In the GSS sample, age differences in household composition, satisfaction with family life and financial circumstances, perceived time pressures in daily life, religious involvement and socio-emotional outlook contribute to the lower anger among older adults. Collectively, my findings show that thepsychosocial and structural environment-experienced differently by age-influences the risk of anger.
