In this study it has been estimated the prevalence of the disability in the over 65 population, resident in the sanitary district 50 of the ASL NA1. The aim is an appropriate nursing planning based on the needs of the population. The used geriatric questionnaire is provided by law (ex art. 70 comma 1 lettera a. del DPR 270/2000). The general practitioners of the district filled in 6014 questionnaires. The elders that resulted as self-reliant at the ADL and self-sufficient at the IADL are 86.9% and 80.2% respectively. 54.9% of the elders are free from slight or heavy depression. 81.7% are not going to have mental worst damage. Depression is statistically related to a low income and to a low level of self-reliance and self-sufficiency at the ADL and IADL questionnaire. The study evaluated important formative needs of the elders and pointed out some issues regarding the questionnaire structure and its filling in.
