Abstract The crude and age-standardized rates of hip fractures in elderly Kuwaiti subpopulation were determined for the years 2009-2012. Both rates have increased and are further expected to rise substantially in the coming decades. INTRODUCTION: It is projected that rates of hip fractures will increase in most of the Middle East countries. There are only few population-based studies investigating the incidence of hip fractures in the Arabian Gulf region. The objective of this study is to report the crude and age-standardized incidence rates of hip fracture in the Kuwaiti elderly population. METHODS: Using the Ministry of Public Health's registry data, this population-based study evaluated the incidence of hip fractures in Kuwaiti subpopulation aged 50 and above for the years 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Using the world population in 2010 as a reference, these incidence rates were age-standardized and compared to data from several regions. RESULTS: Hip fracture crude incidence rates varied between 113.7 and 147.4/100,000 for males and between 135.3 and 148.1/100,000 for females, with a female/male ratio of 1.3-1.5. The combined (men and women) incidence rate of hip fractures increased by 17.1 \% over the 4-year period of study (125.9/100,000 in 2009 to 147.8/100,000 in 2012). Using the world population in 2010 as a reference, the age-standardized rates were 129.5, 131.5, 154.6, and 169.8 for males and 189.6, 192.9, 197.2, and 214.4 for females, for the years 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The hip fracture age-standardized incidence rates in the Kuwaiti subpopulation aged 50 years and above are rising and expected to increase substantially in the coming decades.
