  • New study indicates poor health — not aging itself — decreases older Americans’ likelihood of voting

    University of Wisconsin–Madison sociology professor Michal Engelman led the study, published Oct. 15 in the Journals of Gerontology: Series B, along with sociology graduate student Won-tak Joo, sociology Professor Jason Fletcher and political science Professor Barry Burden. The study uses data from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study, which Engelman directs. The WLS has followed more than 10,000 Wisconsin high school graduates since 1957, surveying them about once a decade. In addition to the original participants, the survey has interviewed their siblings and spouses and includes detailed data on wealth, physical and mental health, and a range of social activities.

In “Towards a reconsideration of the use of use of agree-disagree questions in measuring subjective evaluations,” UWSC researchers provide a review and synthesis of research on the measurement properties and potential limitations of AD questions.
