    These cases were compared with 1,715 controls who reported no disability.

    The sociodemographic factors that were significantly related to incident disability in this analysis were age, female gender, and less than a high school education.

    These comparisons revealed associations of incident disability in activities of daily living with almost all antecedent chronic physical illnesses.

    Significant age-and gender-adjusted associations were observed between incident disability in activities of daily living and antecedent (in 1981) alcohol abuse and dependence (odds ratio (OR)=2.5,95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.5-4.2), major depressive disorder (OR=4.2,95% Cl 2.2-8.3), and phobia (OR=1.9,95% Cl 1.3-2.8).
