Abstract

Across the lifespan, different environmental contexts may, in the long term, affect health and well-being. Exactly which contextual demands translate into different aspects of self-reported everyday demands has hardly been examined. In this telephone-based study with 365 adults between 51 and 80 years, we assessed (a) age differences in the existing everyday demands, (b) relations between different measures of everyday demands, and (c) the correlational patterns between measures of everyday contexts and everyday demands. Results demonstrate age effects in all measures of everyday demands, and differences between measures. The findings suggest age-related differences in the correlational patterns between specific everyday contexts and the levels of everyday demands.
