|Title||Factors associated with self-reported ill health among older Ugandans: a cross sectional study|
There is limited research on the prevalence and factors associated with self-reported ill health among older people in Uganda.
Therefore, the aim of this paper was to estimate the prevalence of self-reported ill health and to identify associated risk factors among older people (age 50+) in Uganda.
Materials and methods
We conducted secondary analysis of a cross sectional survey data from a weighted sample of 2382 older persons from the 2010 Uganda National Household survey. We used frequency distributions for descriptive statistics, chi-square tests (significance set at 95%) to identify initial associations and multivariable logistic regressions reporting odds ratios to examine observed associations with self-reported ill health.
