Methodology
  • Data for this study came from a telephone survey administered to a representative sample of informal caregivers (age 45-80) who provide transportation assistance to older adults (age 70 and older) in Michigan. The survey contained 41 questions covering the following topics: demographics, driving status and frequency, work and/or volunteering activity, health, types of transportation assistance provided, characteristics of the care recipient, caregiver help information seeking, and caregiver burden. More information can be found in the following report: Eby, D.W., Molnar, L.J., Kostyniuk, L.P., St. Louis, R.M., & Zanier, N. (2011).
