This dataset contains retrospective estimates for healthcare spending attributable to dementia for 195 countries from 2000 to 2019 and prospective spending estimates from 2020 to 2050 under multiple scenarios. Intermediate and final estimates are provided. Intermediate estimates include community based care rate (CBC), nursing home based care rate (NHBC), community based care unit cost, and nursing home based care unit cost. Final estimates are attributable dementia spending. All spending is reported in 2019 United States dollars. Future estimates report the same model outputs as those reported in the retrospective model but include both reference and alternative scenarios based on accelerated care setting rates and units costs.
