now, existing measures have tapped people's opinions on the cultural expectations for young men.
Very few research studies have asked mature men and women their opinions about the cultural
expectations for mature men. Also, nearly all the existing measures were based on college-age
men's social worlds, rather than on mature men who may have adult children, or may be
approaching retirement or have retired, and who may have faced the responsibilities of caring for
their partner's ill-health.
We have developed a new measure of cultural expectations for men to address these issues, and are
now recruiting men and women over the age of 30 to complete the online survey. Would you be
willing to help our research team by participating? The survey is 71 questions long and takes about
15 minutes to complete. Upon completion, you can choose to be entered into a raffle to win $50.
Participation in this study is entirely voluntary and you may refuse to participate or discontinue
answering questions at any time without penalization. Data collection will be entirely anonymous.
You will be directed to another website where you will enter identifying information in order to
enter the raffle but the researchers will not be able to link that information to any particular survey
responses, maintaining confidentiality. All responses to measures will be confidential and will not
be traceable back to the individual. Records of this study will be kept private. Any published results
will not contain personally identifiable information and your name will not be associated to any of
