Incidence of Dementia and Associated Factors in the EPIC-Spain Dementia Cohort.
TLDR
Dementia incidence increased with age and was higher among women, but showed no geographical pattern, while low education, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia were the main independent predictors of dementia risk, whereas alcohol showed an inverse association.
Prevalence and Causes of Cognitive Impairment and Dementia in a Population-Based Cohort From Northern Portugal
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of vascular cognitive impairment in the epidemiology of dementia in Portugal and carry an important public health message regarding its prevention and management, possibly extending to other countries with a high-stroke burden.
Dementia-associated mortality at thirteen years in the NEDICES Cohort Study.
TLDR
Dementia intensity increases the mortality risk at ten years in the NEDICES Study as in other cohort studies, and factors associated with higher mortality in Cox proportional hazard models were older age, male gender, and comorbidity.
Consistency of Clinical Diagnosis of Dementia in NEDICES: A Population-Based Longitudinal Study in Spain
TLDR
It is concluded that a single 2-phase investigation (screening followed by clinical examination) provides accurate information for most population-based prevalence studies of dementia.
Dementia Incidence in the Elderly Population of Greece: Results From the HELIAD Study.
TLDR
The incidence rate of dementia in people 65 years and above in Greece is generally consistent with recently published rates in Europe and North America, while higher educational attainment seems protective.
Prevalence of dementia disorders in the oldest-old: an autopsy study
TLDR
This retrospective study using strict morphologic criteria confirmed increased prevalence of AD with age, but mild decline at age 90+, and progressive decline of VD, while AD + vascular pathologies including MIX showed considerable age-related increase, confirming that mixed pathologies account for most dementia cases in very old persons.
Prognostic Significance of Mild Cognitive Impairment Subtypes for Dementia and Mortality: Data from the NEDICES Cohort.
TLDR
The amnestic-multi-domain MCI (aMd-MCI) had the best dementia predictive accuracy (highest positive likelihood ratio and highest clinical utility when negative) and might be explored with increased attention in MCI research and in dementia preventive trials.
Under reporting of dementia deaths on death certificates using data from a population-based study (NEDICES).
TLDR
It is concluded that reporting of dementia on death certificates remains poor, suggesting a lack of awareness of the importance of dementia as a cause of death.
[The Epidemiology of Dementia and Alzheimer Disease in Portugal: Estimations of Prevalence and Treatment-Costs].
TLDR
The aims were to obtain up-to-date information about the prevalence of dementia/ Alzheimer's disease in Portugal, to estimate the number of cases effectively diagnosed as dementia and to determine illness-costs with specific dementia treatment.

Incidence and etiology of dementia in a large elderly Italian population
TLDR
In this population-based cohort, incidence of dementia increased with age, and Alzheimer disease was the most frequent type of dementia, and poor education was associated with a higher risk of AD.
Ten-year incidence of dementia in a rural elderly US community population
TLDR
Investigation of incidence rates by age, sex, and education of overall dementia and probable/possible AD in a largely rural community found men and those with lesser education had higher rates of possible/incipient dementia in this community.
Incidence of essential tremor in three elderly populations of central Spain
TLDR
The incidence of essential tremor in three populations in central Spain may be higher than previously recognized because a large proportion of patients with ET may never seek medical attention.
Prevalence of dementia and major subtypes in Europe: A collaborative study of population-based cohorts. Neurologic Diseases in the Elderly Research Group.
TLDR
Dementia is more prevalent in women, and AD is the main contributor to the steep increase of prevalence with age, so a large variation across studies was observed, as well as a difference in prevalence between men and women that was age dependent.
Incidence and subtypes of dementia in southern Taiwan Impact of socio‐demographic factors
TLDR
The age-specific incidence of dementia in Taiwan is approaching that of developed countries and the low prevalence of dementia (especially VaD) may be mainly due to the high mortality.
Incidence of dementia and major subtypes in Europe: A collaborative study of population-based cohorts. Neurologic Diseases in the Elderly Research Group.
TLDR
It is confirmed that AD is the most frequent dementing disorder in all ages, and that there is a higher incidence of dementia, specifically AD, in women than men among the very old, and there may be regional differences in dementia incidence.
Incidence and risk of dementia. The Rotterdam Study.
TLDR
Although the incidence rates of men and women up to age 85 were similar, the lifetime risk of dementia for 55-year-old women was twice as high as for men (0.33 vs. 0.16), reflecting both the higher life expectancy of women and the higher dementia risk at very old age.
Prevalence of clinically diagnosed Alzheimer's disease and other dementing disorders
TLDR
Comparison with other populations suggests that dementia of all types is as frequent in Appignano as elsewhere, and that Alzheimer's disease might be more frequent in rural than in urban populations.
Incidence of Dementia in a Rural Community in Spain: The Girona Cohort Study
TLDR
All dementia subtypes increased with age, but incidence rates did not increase exponentially in the oldest old, and the inclusion of information about dementia symptoms from relatives of deceased participants was useful to avoid underestimation of the dementia incidence rates.
Dementia and Alzheimer disease incidence: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
The authors' dementia and AD incidence rates are consistent with recent US and European cohort studies, providing clinicians and researchers new information concerning the reproducibility of incidence estimates across settings.
