Abstract:

This study investigated the factors that support the elderly citizens’ perceived healthy independent longevity during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. The Structural Equation Modeling was conducted with the 1607 dataset collected from Japan to validate a proposed model with six antecedent factors. It has been found that “Town vibrancy” and “Mobility and transportations” have the most significant impact, whereas “Health and welfare policies” and “Community bonding” have a relatively lower impact on their perceived healthy longevity. The study has provided a conceptual model with measurements for further discussions in the field of study.
