Both diseases show an exponential increase of prevalence rates with age in all populations investigated, starting from 2-3% in the age group 65-70 and surmounting 30% beyond 90 years of age, MID and AD doubling about every 5 years. 3% at the age of 60-69, tripling every ten years of life and reaching around 3-4% at the age of 80 and over. Thus the exponential increase in prevalence is primarily due to the exponential age-dependent increase in the true morbid risk. The sex distribution for both types of dementia is still under discussion.
