  1. Risk factors for physical disability in an aging cohort : the NHANES I epidemiologic followup study.

    Article - En anglais

    Successful improvement in health in our increasingly aged population will depend in substantial part on reduction of age specific disability levels.

    In turn, the epidemiologic model suggests that this requires identification of risk factors, development of intervention models, and testing of these models.

    We attempted to identify risk factors for physical disability among 4,428 50-77-year-olds using baseline data collected in the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) (1971-1975) linked to disability data collected 10 years later in the NHANES I Epidemiologic followup Study.
