ABSTRACT

Objective:: to identify the healthy aging profile in octogenarians in Brazil.

Method:: this population-based epidemiological study was conducted using householdinterviews of 335 octogenarians in a Brazilian municipality. The decision-treemodel was used to assess the healthy aging profile in relation to thesocioeconomic characteristics evaluated at baseline. All of the tests used ap-value < 0.05.

Results:: the majority of the 335 participating older adults were women (62.1%), were agedbetween 80 and 84 years (50.4%), were widowed (53.4%), were illiterate (59.1%),had a monthly income of less than one minimum wage (59.1%), were retired (85.7%),lived with their spouse (63.8%), did not have a caregiver (60.3%), had two or morechildren (82.7%), and had two or more grandchildren (78.8%). The results indicatethree age groups with a healthier aging profile: older adults aged 80 to 84 years(55.6%), older adults aged 85 years and older who are married (64.9%), and olderadults aged 85 and older who do not have a partner or a caregiver (54.2%).

Conclusion:: the healthy aging profile of octogenarians can be explained by age group, maritalstatus, and the presence of a caregiver.

Mentions: The tree model was built with eight nodes, the estimated average risk was 0.412 (±0.027), and the total correct classification was 60.0%. The healthy aging profile ofoctogenarians could be explained by age, marital status, and the presence or absence ofa caregiver. The first node gave rise to two distinct branches, which described healthyaging according to the age groups: individuals aged 80-84 years (N = 169; 50.4%) andindividuals aged ≥ 85 years (N = 166; 49.6%). In general, healthy aging prevailed amongsubjects in the 80-84 year age group (55.6%), among those who were married (64.9%), andamong those without partners or caregivers (54.2%). Unhealthy aging prevailed in 34(68.0%) older adults without partners and with caregivers (Figure 2).
