Health and social predictors of mortality in an elderly Chinese cohort.
A total of 1,054 Hong Kong Chinese subjects aged 70 years or over were recruited into a cohort study to investigate the relation between social support and health outcomes.
More than 30 social, health, and behavioral characteristics were recorded as baseline information when the study began in 1985.
Mortality data were obtained during a 2-year follow-up.
Logistic regression analyses were used to determine the roles of these variables in predicting mortality.
