Summary: An investigation was made of the relationship between personalfactors of selected urban geriatric populations in Dade and BrowardCounties, Florida and t he self concepts of the subjects as measuredby scores on the Tennessee Self Concept Scale. Subjects under studywere one hundred fifty-nine men and women volunteers over the age ofsixty who were participants at the eight Senior Centers of DadeCounty, Ida Fisher Junior High's Community School, or BrowardCommunity College's Services for the Elderly Program.The instrument used to obtain the personal factors information(senior center, birthplace, ethnic group, sex, marital status, age,religious preferernce, number of children, income, former occupation,education) was a questionnaire devised by the investigator consistingof nineteen questions. The self concept assessments were obtained byusing the Tennessee Self Concept Scale. The self concept scores whichwere used in this study were Total Positive, Self Criticism, PhysicalSelf, Moral-Ethical Self, Personal Self, Family Self, and Social Self.The responses on the Tennessee Self Concept Scale and questionnairewere compared using a univariate analysis of variance for eachpersonal factor as compared with each of the seven scores on theTennessee Self Concept Scale for each subject. The results of thiscomparison were in terms of an F-test of analysis of variance, and theresults were considered significant if they exceeded the .05 level.Additionally, data were graphed by senior center.Of the eleven personal factors which were investigated, six boresome significant relationship (at the .05 level) to one or more selfconcept scores of the subjects under investigation. These factors weresenior center, sex, birthplace, educational level, ethnic group, andreligious preference.When the data were graphed by senior center, it was found thatClaude Pepper, Edison Courts, James Scott, Metropolitan, Smathers, andIda Fisher senior centers had a similar Tennessee Self Concept Scaleprofile and similarities in the personal factors of birthplace, ethnicgroup, sex, marital status, religious preference, number of children,income, and education.
