  1. Note: Values of the index are presented by using the deficit count (for example, we multiplied the index by 42 for the all-factor measure), to evaluate the change in risk seen with each added deficit. As a worked example, for each increase in deficit accumulation, the risk of death increased by 22% in men, 14% in women; for dementia, for each increase in deficit accumulation, the risk of dementia increased by 18% in men and 8% in women for dementia. Significance level, P < 0.001 for age and Frailty Index in each model.
