Abstract

PURPOSE: Depression is the most common psychiatric illness affecting adults. Despite the importance oi a potential link between major depression and mortality, research has been surprisingly sparse. METHODS: Information on 57,897 white adults aged 25 years and older who were included in the mental health supplement oi the 1989 National Health interview Survey was linked with the National Death Index to examine the relationship of major depression to mortality. Death status was obtained through December 1991. Sex-specific hazard rate ratios for mortalitywere calculated by Cox proportional hazards regression and Poisson regression to adjust for potential confounders (age, education, marital status, body mass index, and whether the target subject or a family member completed the survey about the subject). RESULTS: Major depression was reported for 223 (0.8%) of 27,345 men and 392 (1.30%) of 30,552 women. During the 2.5-year follow up, death certificate data were obtained for 848 (3.1%) men and 651 (2.1%) women. The adjusted hazard rateratios for all cause mortality associated with major depression were 3.1 (95% confidence interval; 2.0-4.9) for men and 1.7 (95% confidenceinterval; 0.9-3.1) for women. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest thatmajor depression increases risk of all cause mortality, particularly among men. Further research is needed to explain the mechanism.
