Dignified and satisfying aging is a growing concern for individuals and policymakers across the world. The mechanism of aging reflects different psychological and physical changes over time. This research analyzes the implications of multifaceted life predictors for senior citizen’s self-esteem in Pakistan by examining the impact of socioeconomic status, social integration, general activities, and health in relation to the self-esteem of 312 retired senior citizens. Validated measures such as the Rosenberg Self-esteem Questionnaire and Bowling Quality of Life Questionnaire were used for data gathering. The results indicated that social integration was closely related to the self-esteem of the elderly.
