Background no studies have estimated disability-adjusted life-years (dalys) lost due to hip fractures using real-life follow-up cohort data. We aimed to quantify the burden of disease due to incident hip fracture using dalys in prospective cohorts in the chances consortium, and to calculate population attributable fractions based on dalys for specific risk factors.
