- This study examines the impact of social-psychological factors on the life satisfaction of 104 Korean persons aged 55 and older in the San Francisco Bay Area. There has continued to be a steady growth in the overall population of persons 65 years of age and older in American society and Koreans are no exception. This increase in the elderly population poses serious problems in the American youthoriented society. Although problems for the elderly are very serious, they are more so for the Korean elderly because of the cultural and language barriers they experience.
