This report, developed with the Urban Institute using the National Alzheimer’s Disease Index, analyzes the county-level impacts of dementia and explores the social inequities present in counties highly impacted by Alzheimer’s among Blacks and Latinos. Our report calls for an increased focus on understanding the relationship between place, the social determinants of health, and dementia risk to promote brain health equity across the lifespan.
