Aging and Functional Health Literacy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Kobayashi LC, Wardle J, Wolf MS, von Wagner C - J Gerontol B Psychol Sci Soc Sci (2014)

Bottom Line: Older age was strongly associated with limited health literacy in analyses that measured health literacy as reading comprehension, reasoning, and numeracy skills (random-effects odds ratio [OR] = 4.20; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.13-5.64).By contrast, older age was weakly associated with limited health literacy in studies that measured health literacy as medical vocabulary (random-effects OR = 1.19; 95% CI: 1.03-1.37).Vocabulary-based health literacy skills appear more stable with age.
