Abstract: Objective: To explore the construct of complicated daily tasks (CDTs) performed by older Chinese people. Study Design: Panel review and face-to-face interview. Setting: Community of an urban Chinese city. Participants: Forty-six women with no major medical events and living independently in the community. Outcome Measures: A structured questionnaire containing 21 tasks rated for perceived complexity, importance and frequency. Results: A three-factor structure was revealed: "home maintenance", "outdoor" and "technological". The 12 core tasks were somewhat different from those revealed in other common clinical instruments. Conclusion: Performance of CDTs demands cognitive and physical capabilities, and technological skills of older people. Tasks specific to the Chinese culture were those related to cuisine, use of gadgets, physical environment and life-style.
