Abstract

Previous literature shows that Body Mass Index (obesity status) is a strong predictor of the

Ageing over the period from 2002 to 2011, we find that obesity status is also a significant risk

ADLs and IADLS and for specific existing health conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure,

but not formal care, in two-year’s time. Sensitivity analysis on a restricted sample shows that this

significantly lower likelihood of using any mode of care in the future, with the strongest effect for

protective effect of physical activity is stronger for males.
