The purpose of this study is to identify the social factors related health status and the relationship between social factors and health status of community elders in Korea. The conceptual framework of this study was based on the association between social factors and health. The subjects for this study were 531 elders in Pusan, Korea. Data collection was performed by 9 trained interviewers individually in subjects' house. Hierarchical multiple regression model was used to predict the relationship between the health status and social factors. Demographics and social factors such as loneliness, social network, perceived social support and education significantly explained 21.9% of the total variance of perceived health status (F=19.25, p=.000) and 40.3% of health promotion behaviors(F=43.51, p=.000). Loneliness was the most significant correlated variable of perceived health status (beta=-.370, p=.000) and health promotion behaviors(beta=-.448, p=.000). Education (beta=.21, p=.000), social network(beta=.15, p=.000) and perceived social support (beta=.116, p=.006) were correlated with health promotion behaviors. It can be concluded that severely perceived loneliness, lack of education, and limited social support will be risk factors on health status of elders. The findings of this study will provide the grounds for assessment and intervention of community elders in Korea.
