This study is the result of a recognition of the sizeable representation of persons from Arabic-speaking nations who reside in the State of Michigan, most of them in the Detroit Metropolitan Area. The study replicates the Needs Assessment Survey of the Over 60 population which was conducted in 1985, and represents the third in a series of studies, each designed to focus on a specific ethnic subgroup of the Michigan population. Hispanic elders were studied in 1987, followed by Native American elders in 1989, and the present study of Arab and Chaldean elders in 1991.
