This study examined the predictive relationship between loneliness and perceived health status. The subjects for this study were 531 elders who were 60 and over. This is a descriptive study using cross-sectional design. Data collection was performed by 17 trained interviewers individually in subjects' house from April 3 to August 10, 2000. Loneliness using revised UCLA Loneliness scale, perceived health status using instrument developed by Lawston etc. and demographics such as age, gender, education were measured. Hierarchical multiple regression model was used to examine the relationship between perceived health status and its' predictors: loneliness and demographics. Demographics such as age, gender and education, and loneliness significantly explained 19.6% of the total variance of perceived health status (F=31.027, p=.000). Loneliness was significant predictor of perceived health status, while controlling for the demographics(beta=-.376, p=.000). Among demographics, gender had effect on perceived health status (beta=-.165, p=.001). The findings of this study indicated that elderly who perceived less loneliness and were male perceived better in health status. This study will provide the grounds for assessment and intervention of health of community elders in Korea.
