The study included data of 3,375 adults aged between 70 and 90 years all of whom were involved in the 1990–2015 Jerusalem Longitudinal Study.

Having analyzed the received data, the scientists found that senior adults who left their houses regularly were at the lowest risk of death, while those seniors who left their houses seldom were at the highest risk of death.
