The impact of occupational age-retirement on physical and mental health was investigated in 116 female municipal employees (age 62-64 years old) in Malmö.
Interviews and physical examinations were made about six months prior to and five months after retirement.
The women were asked about present state of subjective health, earlier and present diseases, various symptoms, medication, calls to physicians, smoking habits, physical activity and sleeping habits.
The majority (n=109.94%) felt healthy before retirement.
At least one definable disease was noted in 41 (35%). A proportion of them had a low level of subjective health which, however, improved after retirement.
The disease most commonly found was hypertension.
