One of the pathological variables in dealing with death is death anxiety. The aim of this study was to predict death anxiety by examining its relationship with the health locus of control in middle age and elderly. The design of present research was a correlational study. This study was conducted from the winter of 2019 to the spring of 2020 on 226 middle-aged and elderly Iranian men and women who participated in this study voluntarily. Cult-Leicester Death Anxiety Scale and standard questionnaire of Health locus of control were used for collecting data. The results indicated that there was a significant negative relationship between the internal health locus of control and death anxiety, which means that as the internal health locus of control increases, death anxiety decreases. Also, the results of regression analysis revealed that the health locus of control and its dimensions can predict death anxiety at a significant level.
Keywords: Death anxiety, health locus of control, middle age, elderly
