Development of a frailty index from the Dutch public health monitor 2016 and investigation of its psychometric properties: a cross-sectional study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Frailty in older adults is an increasing challenge for individuals, health care organizations and public health, both globally and in The Netherlands. To focus on frailty prevention from a public health perspective, understanding of frailty status is needed. To enable measurement of frailty within a health survey that currently does not contain an established frailty instrument, we aimed to construct a frailty index (FI) and investigate its psychometric properties.
