Using the 2012 Rand HRS data files, the objectives of this study were to examine the effects of unsecured debt on mental and physical health among middle aged and older unmarried women, and to investigate factors influencing the mental and physical health among unmarried women (N=5,227). On average, women in this study held $3,353 as their unsecured debt amount. The findings of this study suggest that that the amount of unsecured debt had a significant impact on both mental and physical health among unmarried women. In addition, the findings suggest that unmarried women with higher income, those who were highly educated, and those who were homeowners had fewer numbers of depressive symptoms and less occurrences of chronic illness.
