Aging is a complex and multifactorial process. The current research is focused on mattering in older people. Mattering is the feeling of being important to others in ways that give individuals the sense that they are valued and other people care about them. However, for many aging brings about the loss of self-esteem and they feel useless, deprived, and unwanted. We have used the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and Partial Least Square Structural Equation Modelling technique for evaluating the level of self-esteem in senior citizens of Pakistan. The results reveal a strong association between the predictor and the criterion variables, supporting the view that the social integration construct is the strongest determinant of self-esteem in old age. Based on the results, we can argue that socio-economic status, social relationships, daily activities, and self-reported health have a direct association with the self-esteem of elderly people.
