Statistics by Country for Dementia


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Dementia: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Dementia are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Dementia statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Dementia in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Dementia: The word 'prevalence' of Dementia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Dementia at any given time (i.e. people with Dementia). The term 'incidence' of Dementia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Dementia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Dementia). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Incidence (annual) of Dementia: 6,175 annual cases in Victora 1996 (DHS-VIC)
Incidence Rate for Dementia: approx 1 in 738 or 0.14% or 368,320 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Dementia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Dementia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Dementia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Dementia in any region:
