The aim of this study is to examine health-related behaviors, and mental health of one-person household adults and health-related quality of life levels, and investigate factors influencing their health-related quality of life.
A Secondary data from the 8th Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2019, 2021) were used for data analysis. Data from 839 one-person household adults aged over 20 were analyzed. Hierarchical regression analysis was conducted to explore risk factors on quality of life.
Among single-person household adults, the study found that the smoking rate was 33.4%, with an alcohol consumption rate of 66.9%. Additionally, approximately 50.9% engaged in regular physical activity, 32.2% reported experiencing much stress, and 7.5% had experienced suicidal ideation. The overall quality of life was 0.81 out of 1 point. The factors influencing the quality of life were age, income, occupation, stress, and suicidal ideation.
It appears that we need to identify whom have no job, low income, with high levels of stress and suicidal thoughts, from their early adulthood in single-person householdsand and to have attention and support for the health-related quality of life.
Key words: Adults, Quality of life, One-person households, Single-person household
