The Advisory Committee on Gerontological Problems suggested to the Board of Organization for Health Research of the Netherlands Public Health Department that a comprehensive study of the state of health and related sociopsychological factors of the non-institutionalized Dutch men and women over 65 years of age would be valuable. Dr. Van Zonneveld, who had done excellent work of this sort in Groningen, was appointed to the task. This book, seven years later, records the results. It deserves the highest praise, not merely for the variety and the ordering of the facts (incidentally all in good English!), but even more for
The Health of the Aged: an Investigation into the Health and a Number of Social and Psychological Factors Concerning 3,149 Aged Persons in the Netherlands, Carried out by 374 General Practitioners under the Direction of the Organization for Health Research T.N.O.. Ann Intern Med. 1962;56:167–168. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-56-1-167
