Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine how the observed choices for type of garments, color of garments, fiber content, form of fabric, and price range paid for women's clothing were associated with or differed with the demographic variables of age, employment status of the female, income, race, rural/urban areas, and sections of the country. The ultimate purpose was to determine if elderly women differed from women of three other age groups with respect to the clothing profiles. The data were obtained from the 7,500 households which made up the National Consumer Panel of the Market Research Corporation of America. All women, 18 years of age and older, who were a part of this Panel during 1974 and 1975 were included in the sample. All purchases of dresses, housedresses, pantsuits, suits, blazers, blouses, shirts, skirts, slacks, jeans, and shorts for self-use during 1974 and 1975 were included in the analysis.
