NPR's Wendy Schmelzer reports on the results of a comprehensive new study of middle age, which offers a complex explanation of the mid-life years, based on a survey of three thousand Americans between the ages of 25 and 74. The study is called MIDUS, an acronym for `Midlife Development in the United States.' It was commissioned by the MacArthur Foundation.
