dc.description.abstractUsed medical records to compare the prevalence rates of dementia in Rochester, Minnesota, on January 1, 1980, with the rates for January 1, 1975. The overall sex- and age-adjusted rate per 100,000 population for dementia (all types) was 402.5 in 1980 and 388.4 in 1975. For Alzheimer's disease, the same rate was 259.8 in 1980 and 259.5 in 1975. It is concluded that the relatively high mortality rate from all dementias, rather than out-migration, was the major factor in maintaining the same prevalence rate.
