  1. Social prognostic factors of mortality in a random cohort of Geneva subjects followed up for a period of 12 years.

    Article - En anglais

    Study objective-To analyse the relative risk (RR) of mortality related to social factors independent of health status and occupational category.

    Setting-Subjects were Swiss men and women aged 40-65 years.

    Design-A random sample of 820 people living in Geneva were followed up prospectively between 1984 and 1996.

    The social, occupational, and health data were gathered at subjects'homes in 1984 using a standardised questionnaire.

    Information about deaths and the corresponding dates were obtained from updated files of the Swiss Federal Office of Statistics (OFS).

    Risk of mortality was examined according to a Cox model.

    Main results-There were several social prognostic factors of mortality with relative risks greater than 3.0 (RR>3.0) independent of health and occupational status.

    These factors were : a period of unemployment during life time, the feeling of not demonstrating initiative in the occupational setting, and not having participated in social activities.

    Conclusion-The results suggest that differential mortality determined by occupational status can be explained in part by factors that are characteristic of « life style », social dynamics, occupational context, and ruptures during the course of occupational life.
