Causal model for quality of life of the elderly in Bangkok slums
The purpose of this research was to find the causal factors for quality of life of the elderly in Bangkok’s slums. The samples were 420 elderly people with a household registration in Bangkok’s slums, randomized from multi-stage sampling methods. The research tool was a questionnaire and used structural equation model methods for analysis. The study results found that the causal model for quality of life of the elderly in Bangkok slums was relevant with empirical data on Chi-square at 120.468, p-value at .194, df of 108, Chi-square/df of 1.115, CFI GFI AGFI and RMSEA at 0.998, 0.971, 0.949 and 0.017 respectively. The quality of life of the elderly in slums was impacted from financial satisfaction, health satisfaction, environment within the community, family relationship and social relationship, which were 0.627, 0.526, 0.080, 0.064, and 0.004, respectively, and which also impacted the quality of life of the elderly in slum communities at 76.10 percent.
