This large community-based epidemiological study found a higher prevalence of degenerative spondylolisthesis in women than in men (8.4% vs. 2.7%), which they attribute to menopause.  They report on factors that were or were not significantly related to this diagnosis.  This paper provides important information for healthcare planning and prevention.
