  1. Epidemiological surveys of senile dementia in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiological surveys of senile dementia at home were carried out on 3,754 subjects for two consecutive years, 1987 and 1988.

    The prevalence and incidence rates were 4.1% and 1.01%, respectively.

    Concerning the incidence rate, the sample populations of previous reports were small in number - less than 1,000.

    If we suppose that the incidence were to be approximately 1%, then it follows that dementia would be noted yearly in no more than one out of 100 senile subjects.
