Baby Boomers and Alzheimer’s Demographics

September 08, 2015 In the News

The Alzheimer’s Association (2015) estimated some 81 percent of all people in the United States with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) are 75 years or older. Further, they report (2015) that some 5.3 million Americans (all ages) have Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).Of note, 5.1 million people (of the 5.3 million) are age 65 and older, yet 200,000 individuals younger than age 65 have younger-onset Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association  reports that 11 percent of the population over age 65 have AD, and one-third of people 85 years and older.

Brooks (2015) reports on a study by The Lewin Group for the Alzheimer’s Association that was presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. They report that in the year 2020, AD will occur in some 1.2 percent of the 80 million baby boomers. However, in 2050, when the baby boomers are in their 80s and 90s, 50 percent will have AD.
