Data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing was used to analyse potential associations between markers of socioeconomic status (wealth quintiles and the index of multiple deprivation) and the incidence of dementia. It appears that dementia incidence is associated with low levels of wealth (socio-economic deprivation), and that the outlook for health inequalities appears to be worse among English persons born more recently.
