A population-based case-control study was conducted to examine the effects of past and recent physical activity on the risk of hip fracture in women.
Cases included females aged 55-84 years with a first diagnosis of hip fracture in 1989 in metropolitan Toronto, Canada.
Controls were a population-based random sample frequency matched by 5-year age groups.
Data were collected on 381 cases and 1,138 controls by self-administered mailed questionnaires or telephone interviews.
Past activity was calculated as a compilation of activity in the past year for controls and activity in the year scores at ages 16, 30, and 50 years.
