dc.description.abstract This thesis has explored the relationship between affiliation with voluntary associations and the independent variables of income, education, sex, health, living alone, and age of a sampling frame of 65 and older citizens of Delaware County, Indiana. Additional information received through use of a survey questionnaire included data, the perceived reason for un-involvement as well as categories of desired involvement. Associations considered in this thesis were placed in seven categories fraternal/service, church related, recreational, job related, civic/political, adult leadership, and other. Each variable was then considered in relation to each of these categories. This research supports the hypothesis that older citizens in Delaware County are involved in voluntary associations.
