Analyzing changes in the prevalence of probable dementia, 2011-2015, Vicki Freedman, Judith Kasper, Brenda Spillman, and Brenda Plassman find declines of 1.4% to 2.6% per year, which are concentrated among women, non-Hispanic white and black groups, and those with no vascular conditions or risk factors.
