Abstract

to estimate the prevalence of functional disability in basic and instrumental daily activities and associated factors in elderly who live in the urban area of Bagé-RS, Brazil. this is a population-based cross-sectional study, conducted in 2008; functional disability was defined by basic and instrumental daily activities, using Katz index and Lawton and Brody scale; Poisson regression was used for crude and adjusted analyses. 1,593 elderly individuals were investigated; the prevalence of disability for basic activities was of 10.6% (95%CI: 9.1;12.1) and of 34.2% (95%CI: 31.9;36.6) for instrumental activities; both disabilities were statistically associated to the increment of age, low education level, alcohol consumption, history of cerebrovascular diseases, cognitive impairment, hospitalization and home care. a high proportion of elderly presented functional disability; the outcomes were associated to the following variables: demographic, socioeconomic, behavioral, health status and use of health services.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 August 2017.
All research outputs
#9,134,969
of 15,650,802 outputs
Outputs from Epidemiologia e Serviços de Saúde
#48
of 252 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#136,464
of 273,221 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Epidemiologia e Serviços de Saúde
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,650,802 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 252 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,221 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
