The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between health and social and cultural factors in cross-cultural settings among general populations in the East Asia using statistical survey results of “East Asia Value Survey” in 2002-2004 and “Health and Culture Survey” in 2003.
The target population included adults aged 20 years and older residing in each nation and area. Items related to health were satisfaction of health and self-rated health symptoms, while those related to social and cultural factors were gender, age, education, life satisfaction, family life satisfaction, interpersonal relation to trust, anxiety, and self-rated social class. Relationships were examined using Hayashi's Quantification Method III, logistic regression model, and general regression model.
It was shown that satisfaction of life, self-rated social class were related to health satisfaction, while self-rated health was much more related to anxiety in addition to satisfaction of life.
