Dementia Rates

Key Takeaways

Introduction

The attached spreadsheet contains information on the Alzheimer's/Dementia mortality rate in six US states from 2012 to 2021, including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maryland. We entered "NA" in the designated cells if data was not available. The Research Strategy section below contains information about the data collection strategy.

Selected Findings

Research Strategy

For this study on dementia rates in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maryland, we used data from the most reliable public sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Statista.

The researchers observed that the United States and its states track the mortality rate from Alzheimer's Disease rather than dementia while seeking for statistics on dementia rates. Because Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of dementia, and the CDC has a vast database of cases in each state that can be accessed through the CDC's website and official state websites, the research team chose to use this information for this purpose.
