Croatia

2013: The prevalence of dementia in Europe

Croatia has no official register of people with dementia. Although Croatia is considered as one of the countries with the oldest populations in Europe, some recent publications state that the prevalence of dementia in Croatia is approximately 80,000 (Mimica and Presečki, 2010a and 2010b).

Alzheimer Europe estimates the number of people with dementia in Croatia in 2012 as being 67,076. This represents 1.53% of the total population of 4,387,376 people. The number of people with dementia as a percentage of the population is comparable to 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.
