This study presents data on 40 adults aged 65 years or over who were hospitalized following a mild to severe traumatic brain injury. On average 15 months after their injury, they completed telephone objective measures of global cognition and executive functioning, and self-report questionnaires of cognition, health-related quality of life, and social participation.
