Demographic and educational correlates of self-reported learning among older students.
This survey research project examined correlates of perceived educational benefits in a sample of 560 older persons participating in 20 New England Elderhostel programs. While socio‐demographic and educational characteristics of the participants did not account for a large amount of the variance in perceived growth, level of education completed and sex emerged as significant correlates of growth. Persons of lower socio‐economic and educational status reported greater levels of learning than did those with higher levels of income and education.
