Background:We have analyzed the aged population disability processes to establish specifics and regularities of the causal structure of disability among the working and non-working aged population.

Methods:In total, 1208 examination reports of the Medical & SocialExpert Commission have been subjected to excerption in Almaty.


 Results:Persons having the second disability status prevail in the working aged contingent – 4,4%, which is much higher than the ratios for the first and second disability statuses (0,4%and 0,6%, respectively). Among the non-working population, persons having the second disability status largely prevail too - 8,1% (3,1%and 1,1%, respectively). The casual structure of disability among the non-working disabled persons includes as follows: blood circulatory system diseases (40%), malignant neoplasms (27,2%), and diseases of the eye and its appendages (10,2%). They are followed by endocrine diseases, nutritional and metabolic disturbances (7,6%), bodily injuries (3%),and urogenital system diseases with musculoskeletal system ones - 2,3% each.

The data collection for the working aged populationcontingent has found out blood circulatory system diseases (47%) and malignant neoplasms (34,4%). Alongside with that, the distinctive feature among the said aged populationcohort is a substantial predominance of bodily injuries (7,4%), endocrine diseases, nutritional and metabolic disturbances (2,3%), and only 1,4% is accounted for diseases of the eye and its appendages.
