Description:
   In 2007, 5.2 percent of the 38.7 million persons age 65 and older (elderly persons) reported having one or more cognitive disorders. Cognitive disorders are conditions that hinder a person's cognitive functioning including reasoning and memory. Many cognitive disorders result in impairment of a person's ability to carry out everyday activities and being dependent on others for their care. This Brief provides estimates to gain a better understanding of which subpopulations of the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population have these types of disorders.
