Data from a prospective study were used to investigate risk factors for hip fracture among a representative population of middle-aged adults.
During the years 1974-1978, all women (n=25,298) and men (n=27,015) aged 35-49 years in three Norwegian counties were invited to attend a cardiovascular screening (attendance rate = 91.5%). This cohort was followed throughout 1990 with respect to hip fracture, for a total of 572,006 person-years.
A total of 281 new fractures were identified, of which 71 were excluded from the analysis due to high-energy trauma or fracture in metastatic bone.
