    Article - En anglais



    This study assessed the proportions of the burden of mobility disability in the Dutch population that at attributable to musculoskeletal diseases, lung dis-eases, neurological disorders, heart diseases, diabetes, and cancer.


    National survey data were analyzed with an elimination technique that combines the results of logistic regression analysis and the disease prevalence.


    Of the total prevalence of disability (20.5%), 33.7% can be attributed to these six chronic condi-tions.

    Musculoskeletal disorders ac-count for the major part, whereas the contribution of cancer is very small.


    The potential ben-efits of effective curative or preven-tive treatments for chronic condi-tions, in terms of reduction of the disability burden in the population are limited.
