AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001

Illness and death: In the past year, women are more likely than men to have suffered a family illness or death, as indicated in table 15. Comparing racial and ethnic groups, African Americans have the highest probability of having experienced family illness or death. At the other end of the distribution, Asian Americans were the least troubled by these issues in the 12 months before the survey.
