  1. Social and environmental factors and dysthymic disorder in old age.

    Article - En anglais

    This community-based epidemioIogical survey is concerned with relationships between social and environmental factors and dysthymic disorder (long-lasting depression according to the DSM-III classification) in a Finnish population aged 60 years or over.

    A greater proportion of dysthymic than non-depressed men had retired and did not work at all.

    The occurrence of dysthymic disorders in both men and women was related to retirement because of sickness rather than age, a small number of rooms in their homes, lack of intimate friendships and the occurrence of many long-standing and current social stress factors.
