Topic: Measuring Frailty in Older Canadians: An Analysis of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging, presented by David M. Kanters. The objective of this thesis was to evaluate the frailty of participants in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). A Frailty Index (FI) was constructed for CLSA participants based on the cumulative deficit model of frailty. Exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modelling were conducted to study the underlying constructs of frailty and identify key factors. A new frailty measurement tool was created and its construct validity evaluated.
