10/66 Dementia Research Group Alzheimer's Disease International


All 10/66 publications will appear in online or open access journals, so that the full text versions will be freely available. Summaries of all 10/66 prevalence phase publications, with links to online versions, will appear here as soon as soon as they are in press. Centre and region-specific descriptive papers are currently in preparation/ under review. The first international comparative papers (with data from six Latin American centres, China and India) will be submitted in the first half of 2008.

In the meantime, preliminary findings can be viewed in the powerpoint slides that can be downloaded below. These have all been used in recent 10/66 conference presentations

Background to the study
These slides describe the existing evidence base on prevalence of dementia in LAMIC, the development and validation of the 10/66 Dementia diagnostic algorithm, the study protocol, and the baseline sociodemographic characteristics of the population-based study samples

Prevalence of dementia in Latin America, China and India (Lancet, July 2008)
Results on dementia prevalence according to DSM IV dementia and 10/66 dementia criteria have been published in the Lancet

Cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular disease
The distribution of hypertension, obesity, smoking, stroke and diabetes

Diet and Dementia Prevalence
The cross-sectional associations between fish and meat consumption and dementia prevalence

Developmental indicators and dementia prevalence
The cross-sectional associations between skull circumference, leg length and dementia

The prevalence and correlates of depression
The prevalence of depression according to ICD-10 (depressive episode) and DSM IV (major depression) criteria

Care arrangements and impacts on caregivers
Descriptive data on care arrangements for people with dementia, needs for care (dependency) and caregiver strain. A key early finding from our population-based studies is that dementia, of all the chronic diseases, is the most prominent independent correlate of dependency and caregiver strain.

Use of health care services
The proportion of people with dementia using community health care services, and correlates of health care utilisation a) among the general population and b) among people with dementia.
