There were significant correlations between the ADL, IADL, MMSE, perceived health status, education, and incomes. The factors that influenced significantly on the ADL were age and exercise. The factors that influenced significantly on the IADL were age, education, and exercise. The factors that influenced significantly on the MMSE were age, education and exercise.
