Abstract: We examined stressful life events in 544 elderly participants of PENSA, in Minas Gerais (74.6% women and 25.4% men; age = 72.11; + 8.29; 42.1% aged 60-69; 39% 70-79 and 18.9%, 80-99). Stressful life events were classified into categories related to: death and illness, problems affecting children, caregiving, turning points (transitions), and psychological well-being. Men reported turning points (60-69), problems affecting their children (70-79), death and illness and psychological well-being (≥ 80); women reported turning points (transitions) (60-69), problems affecting their children (60-79), and own death and illness (≥ 80). Women evaluated events as more stressful than men did. There are similar results in the literature.
