A community survey of 1045 persons aged 70 years and over was conducted to identify cases of dementia in the cities of Canberra and Queanbeyan.
Cases were identified using the Canberra Interview for the Elderly, administered by lay interviewers.
When diagnostic criteria were rigidly applied, the point prevalence of dementia in the combined sample of community and institutional residents was considerably lower by ICD-10 than by DSM-III-R.
Both criteria showed a similar rise in prevalence with age, and no gender difference.
Agreement between the two systems had a kappa of only 0.48. « Probable » cases by either criteria were identified solely from respondentprovided information in order to include persons for whom no informant was available.
