Study objective: To test the hypothesis that individuals with a strong sense of coherence (SOC) have a decreased incidence of external cause injuries and to study the role of alcohol consumption and occupational category in that association. Design: Participants of the Helsinki Heart Study were followed up for injuries for eight years through the national hospital discharge register and cause of death statistics. Cox proportional hazards models were used to calculate the relative risks. Setting:...

Abstract Objective We studied the effect of the sense of coherence (SOC) on cancer incidence, the role of age at baseline, and the length of the follow-up in that association. Methods Five thousand eight hundred sixty-six middle-aged men initially in working life were followed up for 12 years after measurement of the SOC. The relative risks (RRs) of cancer were estimated using Cox regression models. Results For all cancers combined in 8-year follow-up, those with a weak SOC had a higher RR of ca...

Background: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that people with a strong sense of coherence (SOC) have decreased all-cause mortality. Methods: The effect of occupation and the SOC on all-cause mortality was studied among 4405 Finnish middle-aged employed men in a prospective 8-year follow-up study. Results: Using Cox proportional hazards models the crude relative risk for all-cause mortality for the low SOC tertile when compared to the high SOC tertile was 1.23 (95% CI: 0.90–1.68)....

Sleep disorders and daytime fatigue are common health problems in middle-aged and elderly populations, and they vary greatly between occupational groups. There is widespread evidence that working hours and job stress may explain these differences. In this study the relationship of job demands and job control to sleep disorders was investigated. The subjects were 3079 middle-aged working men. The data were collected with a questionnaire including scales on sleep quality, job stress and lifestyle....

The risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) was studied in 4405 Finnish middle-aged working men in different occupations according to their sense of coherence (SOC). The study design was prospective and the follow-up time was eight years. Clinical findings such as total cholesterol, systolic blood pressure and body-mass index showed differences when comparing blue and white collar workers. Lifestyle factors such as smoking also differed, but leisure time physical activity depended on SOC. In the wh...
