The relationship between dyspnoea and main lifetime occupation in the elderly.
PAQUID is a prospective epidemiological study of mental and functional ageing.
Based on the data collected during the baseline screening of this cohort, the present paper will examine the relationship between main lifetime occupation and the presence of dyspnoea in a representative sample of 3M subjects aged >=65 years; living at home in the south-west of France.
Subjects were considered dyspnoeic if they had a dyspnoea level 3, 4 or 5 according to the Fletcher classification.
Occupational categories were determined according to the classification of the French Institut National de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques, and to the type of occupation for blue-collar workers.
