Depressive disorders among the Chinese elderly in a suburban community.
A community survey of depression among the Chinese = 65 years in age was performed in a suburban setting.
One hundred and eighty-seven individuals comprised the survey group.
Among them, 65 (34.8%) were scored = 11 on the Chinese version of the Geriatric Depression Scale.
Compared with non-depressed individuals, those with depressive disorders were more likely to be older and with poor family support.
Forward stepwise logistic regression analysis identified only age as significantly correlating with geriatric depression scores.
