With the addition of co-author Barusch, the tenth edition gains incorporation of a female perspective. It also features inclusion of Census 2000 data, treatment of the operation and actuarial status of the Social Security program, expanded coverage of minorities, new material on trends in inequality from both individual/lifespan and macro/historic perspectives, greater discussion of memory, and additional international data.
