The analysis is not just restricted to frequency and cross-tabulations with suitable tests of signification, but also made use of advanced multivariable statistical techniques like binary logistic regression as well as multinomial logistic regression techniques. The finding would be immensely useful for formulating strategies for the well-being of the elderly at personal level as well as at family/community.
