The genetic component of discrete disability traits: an analysis using liability models with age-dependent thresholds.

Abstract

The presence of familial and genetic effects in the Activities-of-Daily-Life (ADL) data collected in the first wave of the 1995 Longitudinal Study of Aging of Danish Twins (LSADT) older than 75 is tested using multithreshold liability models of disability with age-dependent thresholds.
