Economic evaluations will be defined for the purpose of the review as studies that use the cost benefit, cost effectiveness or cost utility measurement method to quantify and compare the costs and effects (health outcomes) of exercise intervention(s) which have as one or their primary objectives falls prevention in elderly adults living in the community.
