Abstract

Objectives Limited Australian dementia incidence data are available. This study aimed to identify the incidence of dementia and its subtypes in an Australian community dwelling population. Method A community dwelling sample of 647 subjects aged greater than or equal to 75 years at recruitment were followed for a mean period of 3.2 years(range 2.6-4.5 years). The incidence of dementia (measured in person yearsat risk) was identified for different levels of severity of dementia, Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Results Incidence figures were slightly higher than those previously reported. The incidence of dementia and of Alzheimer's disease increased with age but was not affected by gender. The incidence of vascular dementia was not affected by age. Conclusion This study provides the largest body of data on the incidence of dementia in Australia. indicating a slightly higher incidence of dementiathan previous reports. Further Australian data are required to confirm these findings. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
