Abstract

Based on information obtained from the central register of death certificates held by the Norwegian National Bureau of Statistics trends in mortality resulting from fractura colli femoris were analysed for the period 1980-94. Mortality decreased by 30% (95% CI; 26%-34%) among women aged 60-98 years, whereas it remained constant among men. For both genders the risk of death from fractura colli femoris increased with age by approximately 20% per year. These changes are discussed in relation to the alleged epidemic of fractura colli femoris.
