This article is from The British Journal of General Practice, volume 64.AbstractBackground: Multimorbidity occurs at a younger age in individuals in areas of high socioeconomic deprivation but little is known about the ‘typology’ of multimorbidity in different age groups and its association with socioeconomic status. Aim: To characterise multimorbidity type and most common conditions in a large nationally representative primary care dataset in terms of age and deprivation. Design and setting: Cross-sectional analysis of 1 272 685 adults in Scotland. Method: Multimorbidity type of participants physical-only, mental-only, mixed physical, and mental and most common conditions were analysed according to age and deprivation. Results: Multimorbidity increased with age, ranging from 8.1% in those aged 25–34 to 76.1% for those aged ≥75 years. Physical-only 56% of all multimorbidity was the most common type of multimorbidity in those aged ≥55 years, and did not vary substantially with deprivation. Mental-only was uncommon 4% of all multimorbidity, whereas mixed physical and mental 40% of all multimorbidity was the most common type of multimorbidity in those aged
