Functional impairment was measured with a four-level Gutman-type scale, with the lowest score indicating no impairment i. As an additional limitation, our examination of race differences in aging and physical activity has, out of necessity, restricted its focus on Blacks versus Whites. In this section, we present key areas of gender stratification research. The final aim of this study was to assess whether health, alone, can account for age differences and the social stratification of physical activity trajectories or whether other psychosocial factors that are known to vary systematically across social strata play a significant role as well.
What's it mean to be an adult? One is upward and other is downward mobility. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Prominent bankers and financiers, who Mills considered 'almost professional go-betweens of economic, political, and military affairs,' are also members of the elite's inner core.

The Social Stratification of Physical Activity Trajectories In order to deepen our understanding of the aging-related declines in physical activity found in previous studies, a thorough examination of status-based heterogeneity in trajectories of physical activity is also needed. As such, this study suggests that with increasing age, adults are spending less of their discretionary time—which itself may actually be expanding with age—participating in physical activities.
