Different Multimorbidity Measures Result in Varying Estimated Levels of Physical Quality of Life in Individuals with Multimorbidity: A Cross-Sectional Study in the General Population

Figure 3

Estimates of the average level (mean values and 95% confidence intervals) of the physical component of health-related quality of life in individuals with multimorbidity, depending on the multimorbidity measure, stratified by age (a), gender (b), and socioeconomic status (c). Operational definitions of multimorbidity: MM2+: having two or more chronic conditions; MM3+: having three or more chronic conditions. Estimates were not computed in the case of multimorbidity measured as MM3+ based on the 6-condition list for young people “25–44 years” and for the “elite” group, due to insufficient subsample size (4 and 2 individuals, resp.).
