Estimating the rates of dementia using administrative data linked to cohort studies


The project will use data from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women s Health and the Health in Men Cohort Study.  Records of dementia will be obtained from self reported data and linked administrative sources. The incidence and prevalence estimates will be produced. In addition capture-recapture methods will be used to estimate numbers of dementia cases not identified through data linkage.
