본 연구는 폐경 후 중년여성의 우울 증상에 영향을 미치는 요인을 확인하기 위해 시도된 이차 자료분석 연구이다. 2016년 국민건강영양조사 원시자료를 이용하여 40~65세의 중년여성 중 폐경여성 647명을 대상으로 하였다. 자료분석은 복합표본 independent t-test 및 다중회귀분석을 실시하였다. 다중회귀분석에서 폐경 후 중년여성의 우울 증상은 경제상태, 주관적 건강상태, 지각된 스트레스, 흡연여부, 신체활동 및 활동제한여부에 영향을 받는 것으로 나타났으며, 회귀모형의 설명력은 36%였다. 따라서 본 연구에서 제시된 폐경 후 중년여성의 우울 증상 영향요인을 고려하여 폐경 이행기 중년여성의 우울 증상을 감소하기 위한 중재 전략을 개발하고 적용할 것을 제언한다.

The purpose of this study was to identify its influencing factors of depressive symptoms in postmenopausal middle-aged women though analyzing secondary data. The data of 647 with 40~65 aged women who participated in the Seventh Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2016 were used. The data were analyzed by complex sample independent t-test and multiple linear regression. In multiple linear regression analysis, economic status, subjective health status, perceived stress, smoking, physical activity, and limitation of active had significant effect on depressive symptoms in postmenopausal middle-aged women. These variables explained 36% of the variance in depressive symptoms. The findings suggest that healthcare providers should be considered to these factors when developing intervention strategies to decrease depressive symptoms in postmenopausal middle-aged women.
