Abstract

This study has been made with the purpose to find out the relationship between cultural values and anxiety about aging. The subjects of this study were Toraja people of middle age groups (40-60 years) and late adults (60 years and over) who were still performing the Ma 'Nene' or Ma 'Ta' Da 'ritual totaling 203 subjects. The instrument used in this study is the INDVALS scale (Sihombing, 2014) to measure cultural value with Cronbach Alpha of 0.866 and AAS scale (Lasher and Faulkender, 1993) to measure anxiety about aging with Cronbach Alpha of 0.82. Data analysis uses the help of the SPSS 21.0 for Windows statistical program. Hypothesis analysis results were acquired using the Spearman method. The results of the analysis showed a significance value (ρ) of 0.000 <α = 0.05 with a correlation coefficient of -0.295, so the results of this study are that there is a negative relationship between the cultural value of anxiety about aging.
