2013: The prevalence of dementia in Europe

Alzheimer Europe estimates the number of people with dementia in Austria in 2012 as being 145,431. This represents 1.73% of the total population of 8,428,915. The number of people with dementia as a percentage of the population is somewhat higher than the EU average of 1.55%. The following table shows the estimated number of people with dementia between 30 and 59 and for every 5-year age group thereafter. However, according to Alzheimer Austria, 50-60% of people with dementia are probably not diagnosed.
