Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between subjective life expectancy (SLE) and self-rated health and further SLE will predict higher risk for mortality. Data from the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA) from 2006 to 2014 was assessed using longitudinal data analysis and 10,244 research subjects were included at baseline in 2006. Our modeling approach was based on generalized estimating equation (GEE) for self-rated health and Cox proportional hazards models for mortality. SLE was significantly associated with mortality (p for trend <0.0001), with the following ORs predicting mortality (yes vs. no): HR = 2.133 (p < .0001) for 0%, HR = 1.805 (p < .0001) for 10-20%, HR = 1.494 (p 0.002) for 30-40%, HR = 1.423 (p 0.002) for 50-60%, HR = 1.157 (p 0.235) for 70-80%, vs. 90-100%. In terms of age-specific association with SLE for self-rated health and mortality, as subjects got older, self-rated health tended to lean more toward poor self-rated health, but as for mortality, the probability of dying increased for people who are younger and HR also tended to increase. This study has shown that SLE is associated with self-rated health and further is a powerful predictor of mortality after adjusting for self-rated health as well as sociodemographic factors and health risk status and behavior factors in a representative population of Koreans.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 October 2017.
All research outputs
#11,778,559
of 15,442,255 outputs
Outputs from Health and Quality of Life Outcomes
#1,044
of 1,660 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#189,481
of 279,240 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Health and Quality of Life Outcomes
#2
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,442,255 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,660 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 279,240 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
