ABSTRACT

This study examined how sedentary time moderates the influence of stress on depression in elderly. The sixth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES V-2, 2014) were used and 1,263 samples were selected among the elderly population aged 65 years or more. A hierarchical regression analysis was performed using sedentary time as a moderator of the relationship between stress and depression. A significant difference in depression for elderly was found by sex (t= -7.60, p<.001), number of chronic disease (F=22.79, p<.001), average monthly income (t=4.45, p<.001), stress (t= -11.29, p<.001) and sedentary time/day (t= -3.29, p=.001). Also, it was found that sedentary time moderated the relationship between stress and depression in elderly. Based on these findings, diminishing sedentary time in stressed elderly is recommended to prevent depression.
