Background: The aim of this meta-analysis was to analyse the magnitude of the effect-size of the cognitive status of populations over 60 years of age, when comparing nonfrail versus pre-frail and nonfrail versus frail subgroups. A systematic review of prospective studies published from 2000 to 2017 was completed in Medline, B-on, Ebsco, Ebsco Health, Scielo, ERIC, LILACS and Sport discus databases and observational, cohort and cross-sectional studies were selected.
