  1. Model 1 adjusted for socio-demographic variables (age, education, income and family status-living alone). Model 2 adjusted for socio-demographic variables and lifestyle factors (physical inactivity). Model 3 controlled for socio-demographic variables, lifestyle factors and somatic variables (multi-morbidity). Model 4 (full model) adjusted for socio-demographic variables, lifestyle factors, somatic variables and psychological variables (depression, anxiety and sleeping problems)
