Core Tip Large medicaid in-hospital database that examines the differences in prevalence of dementia amongst blacks and white population sand by gender. Clear differences emerge; blacks have greater burden of dementia including both genders. Risk factors leading to dementia differed between groups. White males and females had a higher association with stroke, hypertension, heart failure and diabetes while blocks had stroke and diabetes only as risk factors. This difference allows us to target these 2 groups with aggressive management early on to reduce the risk of dementia. The strength lies in analyzing a very large database to derive these conclusions.
