Association between housing type and accelerated biological aging in different sexes: moderating effects of health behaviors

(A) The number and proportions of older adults resided in 1–2 room public housing who had accelerated biological aging was higher (N = 130, 49.2%), compared to those with decelerated biological aging (N = 105, 39.8%). There were 29 older adults with equal rate of biological aging with chronological aging (11%). (B) The number and proportions of older adults resided in 3 room or higher public housing or private housing who had accelerated biological aging was lower (N = 38, 33.9%), compared to those with decelerated biological aging (N = 63, 56.3%). There were 11 older adults with equal rate of biological aging with chronological aging (9.8%).
