Question and answer
What do you think is the most common expression of ageism?
Prejudice or discrimination against someone because of their age – across all age groups – is experienced more commonly than any other form of prejudice. Almost half of the respondents (48%) viewed age discrimination as a serious issue. [ [ The findings are based on secondary analysis of data from a series of nationally representative face-to-face interview surveys (totalling 6,000 respondents),
sponsored by Age Concern England in 2004, 2006 and 2008 and by the Women and Equality Unit in 2005. They provide insights into people’s attitudes to age by examining their assumptions and expectations about age and ageing in Britain. The key findings are: The majority of respondents viewed older people in a positive light. However, 9% expressed indirect prejudice against those over 70 years of age and a similar proportion did not feel it was important to control their prejudice against other age groups. One-in-five (22%) respondents perceived people over 70 as posing an economic threat (taking out more from the economy than they have, or currently, put in). Younger respondents perceived this economic threat more than did older respondents (36%). Age discrimination is expressed differently toward younger and older people. Stereotypically, older people are viewed as warmer and more moral, but less competent, whereas younger people are considered to be more capable, but less warm and less moral. Attitudes to old age were more positive in regions with a higher proportion of older people, suggesting the local context makes a difference to attitudes to age. ]

what is the disengagement theory User: Should old people have to withdraw? Why might they do it?
Weegy: One of the greatest challenges in growing old is grappling with tendencies and pressures to withdraw into ever-tighter circles of restricted daily activities. [ There is no single word or phrase that captures this process, nor is there much research about it. But aging experts agree that withdrawing into an isolated lifestyle is a common practice that can create or worsen physical and emotional problems. ] (More)
