From January 1987 and onwards all cases of hip fracture in Arhus County, Denmark, were registered in a prospective multicenter investigation.
Until December 1990, 2273 postmenopausal women (>50 years) with first hip fractures were registered.
Of these 643 sustained a hip fracture in 1988.
Lifetables were constructed for different age groups; the excess mortality (in comparison with the reference population) for each age group ranged from 10 to 20 percent.
The years of potential life lost (YPLL) (life expectancy method) were calculated for the 1988 cohort and compared with the YPLL due to other selected conditions calculated from official vital statistics.
