Mortality Following Trajectories of Mobility Limitations: The Modifying Impact of Social Factors

Terese Sara Høj Jørgensen, Volkert Siersma, Rikke Lund & Charlotte Juul Nilsson
Objective: How are trajectories of mobility limitations (MLs) among older adults associated with mortality? Do social factors modify these associations? Method: Group-based trajectory modeling was used to identify four trajectories of MLs over a period of 4.5 years among 3,055 older Danes. Mortality analyses were conducted using additive hazard regression models. Results: Compared to older adults without MLs, older adults with high level of MLs who experienced further increase in MLs were associated with the...
