Abstract

Key PointsQuestionWhat is the global prevalence of young-onset dementia? FindingsIn this systematic review, a total of 95 studies were included, of which 74 studies with 2 760 379 unique patients were included in the meta-analysis; the global age-standardized prevalence of young-onset dementia was 119.0 per 100 000 population aged 30 to 64 years. Estimates increased from 1.1 per 100 000 population aged 30 to 34 years to 77.4 per 100 000 population aged 60 to 64 years. MeaningThese prevalence estimates show the importance of young-onset dementia worldwide; policy makers could use this information to organize sufficient health care for young people living with dementia.
