Purpose: The purpose of this study was to understand the variations in the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of older adults according to age differences and to help plan health programs for this group based on age.
Method: A cross-sectional design was used. A total of 1,666 older adults drawn from the non-institutionalized civilian population in South Korea were surveyed using a written questionnaire and an interview that incorporated the EQ-5D-3L. The study was conducted between 2010 and 2012. The data were analyzed using linear regression analysis of complex sampling design.
Results: Scores of EQ-5D-3L differed according to each age group. Mobility, self-care and usual activities domains of the EQ-5D-3L and EQ- 5D VAS had significant differences among the age groups.
Conclusion: The HRQoL showed differences according to age in older populations. Healthcare providers must consider the differences in HRQoL based on age when planning healthcare programs.
