Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Surveillance

Over 130,000 Georgians of all ages are estimated to have Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia (ADRD). With the increasing Georgia aging population, this number is expected to increase to about 190,000 in the next decade - an increase of about 46%.

Georgia is performing surveillance on ADRD using data from several sources.
