ABSTRACT

The study was to investigate the effects of continuation, frequency, and time of physical activity after middle age on all-cause of mortality, and to determine the level of physical activity that should be recommended to Korean adults to reduce total mortality. Data of 3,871 participants in the Korea Longitudinal Study on Aging (KLoSA) who reported exercise habit at 2006 and follow-up until 2018 were analyzed using Cox proportional hazard model and chi-square tests to estimate the annual changes in probability of mortality and independent variables. In the fully adjusted model, the association between physical activity time and all-cause mortality was statically significant. With every 1-minute rise, hazard ratios (HRs) was 0.003 times lower (p = 0.019) for all-cause mortality. However, no significantly association between frequency and duration of physical activity and all-cause mortality. This study found that approximately over 65 min/week of physical activity regardless of the frequency or duration of physical activity reduced all-cause of mortality in Korean community-dwelling adults aged 45 years or more.
