  1. Cumulative impact of sustained economic hardship on physical, cognitive, psychological, and social functioning.

    After adjustment for age and sex, there were significant graded associations between the number of times income was less than 200 percent of the poverty level (range, 0 to 3) and all measures of functioning examined except social isolation.

    As compared with subjects without economic hardship, those with economic hardship in 1965,1974, and 1983 were much more likely to have difficulties with independent activities of daily living (such as cooking, shopping, and managing money) (odds ratio, 3.38 ; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.49 to 7.64), activities of daily living (such as walking, eating, dressing, and using the toilet) (odds ratio, 3.79 ; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.32 to 9.81), and clinical depression (odds ratio, 3.24 ; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.32 to 7.89) in 1994.
