  1. Dynamics of functional impairment in late adulthood : Fraility and its consequences.

    Article - En anglais

    The inconclusive debate about Fries' theory of « natural death and the compression of morbidity » has diverted attention from two key issues-the modifiability and related dynamics of functional impairment in late adulthood.

    Evidence is presented from a large (N=11,000) panel of adults aged initially 58-63 over the period of a decade which documents substantial modification of functional status.

    Further, patterned changes in functional status are related to the dynamics of income, historically a major determinant of functional status, and independently to educational attainment.
