SPSS syntax

For the care receivers (elderly), several SPSS syntax are available to calculate a Quality of Life Index, KATZ Index and Frailty Index (45 items and short), as well as syntax to calculate multimorbidity and the RAND 36 Psychological well-being subscale. A syntax to calculate extra variables for ethnicity of the care receiver is also available. For the caregivers (‘mantelzorgers’ in Dutch), a syntax is available for the calculation of a Quality of Life Index (CarerQoL).

Please note, that all syntax are written for TOPICS-MDS baseline data, but can easily be adjusted for follow-up data.
