IAFOR Interviews #32: The Impact of Family Support on the Mental Health of the Elderly – Dr James McNally


In this interview, IAFOR IAB Executive Council Member Prof. Dexter Da Silva talks with the Director of The National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA) Dr. James McNally.

Prof. Da Silva and Dr. McNally focus their discussion on recent NACDA research findings, specifically on data acquired on the aging Asian population of the United States. They discuss the issues surrounding “Model Minority Stereotyping” and the negative impact it has had on understanding the needs of the U.S. Asian community. The discussion also comments on the benefits of co-residence and various aging studies taking place around the world.

James W. McNally is the Director of the NACDA Program on Aging, a data archive containing over 1,500 studies related to health and the aging lifecourse. He currently does methodological research on the improvement and enhancement of secondary research data and has been cited as an expert authority on data imputation.

Dr. McNally was a Featured Speaker at the The IAFOR Asian Conference on Psychology & Behavioral Sciences 2015 (ACP2015). He is also Conference Chair for IAFOR’s Asian Conference on Aging & Gerontology 2016 (AGen2016) to be held in Kobe, Japan.
