Until recent years the aged citizens of our population have been neglected as a topic of study, even though other segments have been the center of extensive surveys and have received a great deal of attention from social workers, socially conscious individuals in many walks of life, as well as scientists and lawmakers.
The sociologists, whose concern is the study of human society, believe that there are two possible reasons for the neglect of the aged as a special topic of study, "First it has been only recently that this category of people has composed any appreciable percentage of the total population of this country. Even now, in the total world population, the aged are of little statistical importance. Second, it will be noted that the categories which have come into the public eye for study are primarily those which seem to constitute problems in the American society.
