Abstract

As the Danish population is ageing, there is an increasing need for investigating the trends in health and well-being among elderly. Based on a new report from the Danish Health Authority, health professionals and the media reported, that health and well-being among elderly had not improved in 2010-2017. In this review it is argued, that the report does not justify this conclusion because of the following four issues: Other Danish studies show a progress and these studies have not been taken into consideration, cognitive abilities are not included, different health measures in the report showed divergent trends, and some measures indicate methodological weaknesses.
