    Article - En anglais

    To ascertain the frequency and distribution of new cases of dementing illness in the elderly population of Mannheim (population 308 000), a survey sample of community residents of >65 years of age was re-examined after an interval of 7-8 years, and a sample of elderly persons in long-stay care after 5-6 years.

    The estimated annual incidence rate for all forms of dementia, after correction for ageing of the samples, was 15.4 per 1000 persons aged >65, made up of dementia of Alzheimer type (8.9 per 1000), vascular dementia (4.4 per 1000) and other forms (2.1 per 1000).
