AnnotationIncreasing numbers of rural women in the US have a history of labour force participation. The focus of this study is a contrast between two groups of rural women. Factors related to retirement satisfaction are compared for married and d=widowed rural women as part of a larger investigation of retirement satisfaction among rural men and women. Widowed retired women, who have experienced both the transitions of widowhood and retirement, are likely to have a different retirement experience from those who have not experienced both transitions. Retirement for the widowed, as well as for the married, results in inevitable changes in role, status and lifestyle, and thus the particular interest was in assessing the effects of social factors on retirement satisfaction.
