Results: The study indicates that differences in DFLE between the genders could not be detected in 2000 but in 2004 the men were living a life free of disability to a higher extent than women. No statistical significant differences in DFLE for women between 2000 and 2004 were noted. For men the increase in DFLE between 2000 and 2004 was significant.
