This study was to undertaken in order to examine the relationship of control, perceived health status, self efficacy, social support, and demographic characteristics to health promoting lifestyle of elderly women, and to determine factors affecting health promoting lifestyle of elderly women in Korea. he subjects were 300 elderly women over the age 65, living in 2 cities, Korea. The instruments used for this study was a survey of general characteristics, health promoting lifestyle (47items), perceived health status (6 items), self-efficacy (17 items), and social support (18 items). The instruments for this study were pretested on the elderly women for reliability and validity. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficients and Stepwise Multiple Regression. The result of the study are as follows: 1) The average item score for the health promoting lives was 2.46, the highest score on the subscale was interpersonal support (M=2.83), followed by self-actualization (M=2.71), exercise and nutrition (M=2.33), stress management (M=2.31) with the lowest being health responsibility (M=2.20). 2) A significant difference between age, education level, income, experience of smoking, alcohol and exercise, and health promoting lifestyle were found. 3) Social support revealed significant correlations with total health promoting lifestyle (r=.741, p<.01) and all subscales of health promoting lifestyle. Control revealed significant correlations with total health promoting lifestyle (r=-.196, p<.01) and all subscales of health promoting lifestyle. Perceived health status revealed significant correlations with total health promoting lifestyle (r=.232, p<.01) and self actualization, health responsibility, exercise and nutrition and interpersonal support. There was no significant correlation between self-efficacy and all of the subscales of health promoting lifestyle. Self-efficacy revealed a significant correlation only control (r=.333, p<.01). 4) Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the most powerful predictor of health promoting lifestyle was social support (55%). A combination social support, age, experience of alcohol, experience of exercise and medication accounted for 58% of the variance in health promoting lifestyle in the elderly women. So health promoting programs that increase social support should be developed to promote a healthy lifestyle of the elderly women. AN: MN030276
