Abstract

Falls result in significant morbidity and mortality among older adults and are a concern in ageing populations. There has been evidence that socioeconomic status (SES) predicts postfall outcome; worse postfall survival has been associated with lower education,1 lower income,2 and neighborhood deprivation.2 As a small urbanized country, we were interested to evaluate if SES, at both individual and neighborhood levels, was similarly associated with postfall survival in the older adults of our population.
