The purpose was to elucidate factors—specifically mobility, behavior, and travel attitudes—that mediate between personal characteristics and participation in out-of-home activities of the elderly. Driving was found to be a major mediator between personal characteristics (e.g., age and education) and participation. The findings demonstrated the multidimensional nature of participation and emphasize the role of OTs in assessing mobility behaviors and travel attitudes of the elderly.
