Title Job losses and accumulated number of broken partnerships increase risk of premature mortality in Danish men born in 1953
Bibliographic information June 2009, Vol.51, No.6, p.708-713. Illus. 35 ref.
Abstract To investigate how accumulation of job losses and broken partnerships affect the risk of premature mortality, a cohort of 9789 Danish men born in 1953 were followed-up between the ages of 40 and 51. The adjusted hazard rates for premature mortality was 1.44 for individuals with one job loss, 1.55 for individuals with one broken partnership, and 2.15 for individuals with two or more broken partnerships. These findings are discussed.
