Socio-economic factors of chronic diseases for persons 50+ years old
Every country in the world is affected by the rapid growth rate of chronic currencies, and the need for access to appropriate, affordable affordable care for those suffering. Although economic development and modern medicine have helped to reduce lung cancer, some dimensions of globalization have contributed to the increase in Chronic Disease. The purpose of this thesis is to explore and evaluate any relationship between Socioeconomic Agents and Chronic Isles. Conclusions were collected, processed and analyzed, using data from the European easySHARE 7.0 database, and in particular Wave 7, which is a simplified Chronic Disease (ADR) dataset. Statistical Analysis techniques such as Descriptive Measures Analysis, Crosstabulation Relevance Schemes and Spearman's Linear Correlation Coefficient were applied. According to the existing literature, the measurement of Social and Economic Factors can be achieved using specific indicators (CASP Well-being Index, Depression Index, etc.). Based on the results of the other results, we concluded that the 3 Indicators appeared to affect the female sex more. There was a high correlation between the Depression Index and the Quality of Life Index and CASP well-being. Even our results have shown that chronic bones significantly affect a person's quality of life. In addition, data from our analysis have shown that economic data (income) has a significant impact on a person's quality of life.
