  • Data shown are adjusted OR and 95% CI from a logistic regression model relating each receptive and creative cultural activity to good health (1: very good, good; 0: not so good, poor), good satisfaction with life (1: very satisfied, satisfied, somewhat satisfied; 0: bit of both, somewhat dissatisfied, dissatisfied, very dissatisfied), low anxiety score (1: low; 0: high), and low depression score (1: low; 0: high). The models are adjusted for age, socio-economic status, chronic disease, limitation in social contact, physical exercise, daily smoking, body mass index and alcohol consume.
