SANTOS SOUZA, Moema; DA SILVA COQUEIRO, Raildo  e  HENRIQUE FERNANDES, Marcos. POPULATION STUDY ON THE DETERMINANTS FOR SELF-RATED HEALTH OF ELDERLY RESIDENTS IN COMMUNITY. Cienc. enferm. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp.13-26. ISSN 0717-9553.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95532016000200002.

Objective: To investigate the determinant factors of negative health self-concept in community-dwelling elderly. Methods: It is a population-based cross-sectional study which involved 316 elderly people living in the urban area of the municipality of Lafaiete Coutinho-Bahia, Brazil. The dependent variable was the self-rated concept of health and the explanatory variables were classified into: sociodemographic, risk behavior and health condition. For data analysis, Poisson regression was carried out, with a confidence interval of 95% . Results: Most of the elderly (58.1%) perceived their health condition as negative. The results of multivariate analysis showed that negative self-concept of health was positively associated with former smokers, elderly with self-reported diagnosis of diabetes, arthritis, lung disease, and the use of two or more drugs. Conclusion: The results of this study allowed us to detect determinants for negative health self-concept of community elderly.
