Abstract

The estimation of premorbid cognitive performance levels is of considerable practical importance ina wide range of clinical applications. Since many patients, however, cannot undergo neuropsychological examination, a demographically based formula for estimating premorbid intelligence has been developed. This was based on a sample of 420 subjects who were representative with rspect to age, gender and income. Using numerous inclusion and exclusion criteria it was guaranteed that no CNS disorders or gaps in education or career were present. A widely used German test for the assessment of verbal intelligence (MWT-B) was used as criterion. Age, education, occupational level and utilization of print media significantly predicted verbal intelligence (r=.67). Sixty-eight percent of the subjects were correctly classified. The formula obtained covers the range between:87 and 137 IQ points and is not related to gender, income, and county dwelling. Overall, the prediction obtained is comparable to those from equivalent formulas reported for US-American and British populations.
