Abstract

Data on dementia prevalence in Europe are primarily based on studies from Western Europe. Central and Eastern European countries differ from Western European countries in their average income and other socioeconomic and health factors that are relevant for dementia risk. We, therefore, conducted a systematic review of population-based studies on prevalence of dementia in Central and Eastern Europe. We searched in electronic databases from the date of inception up to July 2019, updated in October 2020. We hand-searched references of included articles and contacted experts in each country to identify further articles. We combined studies by meta-analysis where possible. Ten population-based studies (n = 30,268) met inclusion criteria. We meta-analysed seven studies (n = 11,994). The selected studies were conducted across 5 countries with no studies identified for the vast majority of countries in this region. Prevalence of all-cause dementia was 6.7% (95% CI 5.1–8.2) in those aged 60 or over, and 7.1% (95% CI 5.1–9.2) in those aged 65 and over. Prevalence rates were similar to those in Western Europe, but are increasing over time, compared with the patterns of reduction in age-specific prevalence in Western Europe.
