Multimorbidity is common in older people and is a fundamental determinant of quality of life and resource utilisation. This project will map the distribution of multimorbidity, test whether socio-economic factors affect the relationship between multimorbidity and limiting disability and whether these factors explain differences between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
