This study aims to verify the relationship between of social exclusion of older people living in rural areas and their depression, taking experiences of discrimination into consideration, as a meditated effect. Data from a survey taken from 800 elderly people, 65 years old and older and living in rural areas, were used. Frequency analysis, descriptive statistical analysis, and path analysis were conducted using STATA13 and MPLUS 7. Based on the results of path analysis, medical exclusion did not directly affect depression, except when mediated by experiences of discrimination. Lifelong education exclusion and material exclusion had a direct influence on depression. Residential exclusion not only directly affected depression, it was also influential when mediated by experiences of discrimination. Results suggested policies and interventions to prevent the incidence of depression incurred by social exclusion of the elderly in rural areas.
