Finding and conclusion 1
There was no significant correlation between the pre-cruise total life change units (TLCUs) for the two-year period prior to the cruise and cruise-period illness. This suggests that there is no relationship between the stress derived from experienced life changes and illness.
Finding and conclusion 2
However, there was a significant positive correlation between the six-month period prior to the cruise and cruise-period illness, with a correlation coefficient was calculated to be 0.118, (p <0.01). The relationship was strongest for Cruiser One and Cruiser Three. This suggests that there is a relationship between the stress derived from life events in the six months before deployment and illness.
Finding and conclusion 3
The mean illness rate for decile 1 was 1.434 whereas the mean illness rate for decile 10 was 2.049. There seems to be a considerable difference in the amount of illnesses experienced by those with high and low TLCU scores.
Finding and conclusion 4
Sailors that fell into the low TLCU groups (deciles 1 and 2) represented a definite low illness group with a mean illness rate of 1.405. Those with low TLCU scores have low rates of illness.
Finding and conclusion 5
Conversely, sailors with a high TLCU score (deciles 9 and 10) represented a high illness group with a mean illness rate of 2.066. Those with high TLCU scores have higher rates if illness.
Finding and conclusion 6
There was a positive linear relationship between the between the LCUs and mean illness scores when the data was regrouped. As the TLCU scores increase, so does the likelihood of illness.
Bonus Finding and conclusion 1
The illnesses experienced by the men were generally minor in degree and their predeployment life changes were often few and of low significance, therefore it made it much more difficult to detect the relationships between TLCUs and illness. In populations with greater illness variability a stronger relationship might have been demonstrated, but the fact that a significant relationship was detected under these conditions makes the findings more impressive. These results are supported by being consistent with other prospective/retrospective studies.
Bonus Finding and conclusion 2
The life change information might have been a better prediction of illness in the older participants and the married enlisted men than in the group of young, single sailors as the life events noted in the SRE are more likely to have happened to the older, married sailors than the younger, single sailors.
