Abstract : OBJECTIVES: To assess prospectively the effects of perceived non-reciprocity of exchange in three different types of social engagement on health functioning in early old age. METHODS: In the frame of the prospective French GAZEL cohort study, data on reciprocity in three types of role-related social engagement principal regular activity in everyday life, marital role relationship, trusting relationships in civic life were collected from 8679 men and 2742 women mean age: 60.4 years in 2005. Two years later, health functioning was assessed using the SF-36 mental and physical component scores, as well as self-perceived health. Multivariate regressions were calculated, controlling for important confounders including baseline self-perceived health. RESULTS: Consistent effects of perceived non-reciprocity in all three types of social exchange on mental and physical health functioning were observed. After adjustment for relevant confounders including baseline self-perceived, health effects were attenuated, but largely remained significant. CONCLUSIONS: Findings underline the importance of the quality of social exchange reciprocity vs. non-reciprocity for health functioning in early old age.
