Alzheimer’s Disease Prevalence Data

Posted on by NCHS

Periodically we receive questions about the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease in the United States.

 At the National Center for Health Statistics we don’t track the prevalence of the disease other than in terms of mortality and hospice and nursing home care.

The National Institutes on Aging have produced prevalence estimates and projections as has the Office of the Surgeon General.
