Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of bio-sociological and behavioral factors on mortality. The area of study was Wang Namkheo District, Nakhon Ratchasima Province. A two-stage stratified random sampling method was employed, using interview forms. Samples were 200 households with a total population of 881 persons (674 persons alive and 207 persons dead). Statistics were generated using Logistic Regression Analysis. The study revealed that factors influencing adult mortality were in biological factors: age and gender; and in bio-sociological factors: marital status; in health behavioral factors: exercise, areca nut chewing and alcohol consumption. All factors enabled a prediction of mortality with variation of 30.6%.
