This review builds on previous work by the Department of Health (DH), in 2010 to 2011, as part of the development of the Dementia Equalities Action Plan (DH, 2011).
It examines evidence on how the prevalence of dementia varies with the following characteristics:
- socio-economic position
- race or ethnic group
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
The review is for commissioners and providers of dementia services, PHE knowledge and intelligence team, researcher funding bodies and researchers and policy makers.
