  • childhood
  • Objectives Adverse work-related exposures have been linked with decreased physical and mental functioning in later life, however, whether childhood factors explain the associations between work exposures and functioning is unknown. (bmj.com)
  • Our aim was to investigate if job demand and control in mid-life were related to self-reported physical and mental functioning in early old age and whether childhood factors explained these associations. (bmj.com)
  • Adjustment for childhood factors (father's and mother's educational attainment, parents' interest in school at age 7 and cognitive ability at age 8) partially explained the association between job control and physical functioning, but did not explain the association between job demand and mental functioning. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions Job demand and control in mid-life are differentially associated with mental and physical functioning in early old age and some of these associations may be partially explained by childhood factors. (bmj.com)
  • With the availability of a wealth of prospectively collected data on factors in childhood we were able to explore the influence of these on the main associations of interest which few other studies are able to do. (bmj.com)
