Social frailty among older adults has become a growing concern from a public health perspective in the context of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. This study’s aim was to investigate the influence of various aspects of social frailty in community-dwelling older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study carried out a secondary analysis of data collected from the 2020 National Survey of Older Koreans and performed multinomial logistic regression analysis to identify the predictive factors of social frailty. The affected factors for the social frailty group were health conditions (depression), behavioral and metabolic risk factors (exercise, nutritional status, current smoking status, drinking frequency), intrinsic capacity (cognitive functions, activities of daily living), and digital literacy (use of smartphone or tablet PCs). Since multidimensional factors could affect older adults’ social frailty, comprehensive strategies are urgently needed to reduce their rate of social frailty.
