We provide normative data for the story and six-object recall tasks, stratified by age and education in a large population-based cohort of older Spanish adults.
The sample consisted of 2,581 participants without dementia (age range: 67–98 years) from different socioeconomic areas of central Spain. Normative data are presented in percentile ranks and divided into four overlapping age tables with different midpoints.
Spearman correlations and shared variances were calculated to evaluate the effects of sociodemographic variables on both tasks. Our findings showed that age and education influence the scores in the story and six-object recall tasks, whereas sex had null effect on story recall and an almost negligible on object recall, respectively.
The norms presented herein are important for the correct interpretation of scores in the story and six-object recall tasks when assessing older adults in Spain.
