Table 4 Independent predictive capacity of baseline characteristics for a high GFI or FI score

From: Identifying frailty: do the Frailty Index and Groningen Frailty Indicator cover different clinical perspectives? a cross-sectional study

Multivariate analysis I (prediction of high GFI score in patients with a low FI score)
  Odds ratio 95% CI p-value
Age 1.042 0.996– 1.090 0.072
Sex 1.847 0.831 – 4.105 0.13
Consultation gap in months 0.958 0.889 – 1.033 0.27
Living alone as a widower or after divorce 3.797 1.760 – 8.194 0.001
Primary education or less 1.010 0.363 – 2.809 0.99
Multivariate analysis II (prediction of high FI score in patients with a low GFI score)
  Odds Ratio 95% CI p-value
Age 1.059 1.023 – 1.097 0.001
Sex 0.998 0.576 – 1.729 0.99
Consultation gap in months 0.923 0.848 – 1.004 0.062
Living alone as a widower or after divorce 2.149 1.122 – 4.114 0.021
Primary education or less 0.689 0.315 – 1.509 0.35
  1. Effects are depicted per year increase in age and per month increase in consultation gap. Male gender, not living alone as a widower or after divorce, and having other education above primary education were taken as the reference values. CI, Confidence interval.
