The purpose of this study was to clarify mother's the SOC (Sense of Coherence) and unidentified complaint. The subjects were 42 mothers (Age±SD: 33.9±3.4) living in urban areas. We asked the subjects to self-rate their experiences according to scales such as SOC and lifestyle habits and evaluation were made 39 items of self-claimed sheet of unidentified complaint. The results revealed a negative correlation between SOC score and unidentified complaint score (r=-0.580, p<0.01). The high unidentified complaint score group were higher the frequency of late-evening snacks consumption (p<0.05) and long time getting to sleep (p<0.01) than low unidentified complaint score group. Lastly, the results of logistic regression analysis revealed that the SOC score was the only significant independent factor; the dependent variable was the level of unidentified complaint and the independent variables were the SOC, frequency of late-evening snacks consumption and sleep-onset time (β=0.306, Wald=3.917, p=0.048, Exp (β)=0.736). The higher the SOC score suggested the possibility the preventive effect against the occurrence of indefinite complaint.
