Prevalence of dementia in the city of Helsinki.
The Helsinki Aging Study is based on a random sample of 795 subjects aged 75-years (N=274), 80-years (N=266) and 85-years (N=255).
A clinical examination including Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR)-scale was carried out in 82% of the cases. 93 demented subjects were found, 17 of whom had mild dementia.
The prevalence of moderate and severe dementia was 2.9%, 10.3% and 23.3% in the age groups of 75-year-olds, 80-year-olds and 85-year-olds, respectively.
If we take into account also the mild cases, we get the prevalence of dementia 4.6%, 13.1% and 26.7% in the above mentioned age groups, respectively.
