Part of this improvement results from therapeutic advances, as older people are increasingly enabled to function with multiple disorders by complex combinations of treatment. Freedman et al. (2007) reported that between 1997 and 2004 a rising prevalence of chronic conditions among older Americans (aged 65 and over) was accompanied by declines in the proportion reporting disability as a result of those conditions, a phenomenon also reported for the Swedish population (Parker and Thorslund 2007).

The burden of COPD is estimated to be 393 DALYs per 100,000 population, with particularly high rates in individuals aged 70 years and over (WHO 2004a). At the age of 60–79 years, rates are almost twice as high in men as in women, reflecting the leading role of smoking as a causative factor.
