Abstract
A) The main purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence of the frailty and intermediate states in the community-dwelling European population aged 50 and over. B) The second objective was to compare the frailty prevalence in the European population with previous studies in other population. C) The third aim was to determine and comment the difference of the frailty prevalence between the European countries participating in the SHARE study. D) The last aim was to determine the proportion of the frailty European population without disability in basic activities of daily living. This was attempted by using the questionnaire and the physical tests of the SHARE study. [Objectives, p. 5]
