The main goal of this study was to produce normative data for the Portuguese population on the Trail Making Test (TMT). The study included 1,038 community-dwelling individuals aged between 18 and 93 years, who had educational backgrounds ranging from 3 to 22 years. The results showed that sex, age, and education were significantly associated with TMT performance. These demographic characteristics accounted for 57% of the performance variance at part A and 50% at part B. The normative data are presented as regression-based algorithms to adjust direct and derived test scores for sex, age, and education. The adjusted scores' percentile distributions and their correspondence with scaled scores are also provided.
