Summary of "The impact of rural-urban community settings on cognitive decline: results from a nationally-representative sample of seniors in China."

Aging and rural-urban disparities are two major social problems in today's ever-developing China. Much of the existing literature has supported a negative association between adverse community setting with the cognitive functioning of seniors, but very few studies have empirically investigated the impact of rural-urban community settings on cognitive decline in the late life course of the population in developing countries.
