Background: Both respiratory and nonrespiratory hospitalizations are common and costly events in older individuals with obstructive lung disease. Prevention of any hospitalization in these individuals is essential. We aimed to construct a prediction model for all-cause hospitalization risk in community-dwelling older individuals with obstructive lung disease. Methods: We studied 268 community-dwelling individuals with obstructive lung disease (defined as FEV1/FVC
