Abstract

Key Points • 10/66 cognitive tests are well suited for identification of older adults with cognitive and functional impairment at a population level in LMIC setting. • Lower scores on individual domains of the 10/66 battery of cognitive tests are associated with higher levels of disability and functional impairment. • It is feasible to administer 10/66 cognitive assessments in participant's own homes in India. • 10/66 cognitive tests are education and culture fair, suitable for use in population based research in India.
