Abstract

In conclusion, the large-scale, national study by Giordano and colleagues is a welcome addition to this literature which underscores the potential importance of social cohesion on the mortality of US adults. Prospective studies using causal inference techniques are needed to confirm this relationship. Given the dramatic changes in both cohesion12 and mortality1 in the USA over the past several decades, future investigations on potential age, period and cohort effects are also important.
