November 2020
Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden
The researchers compared the different educational lengths with dementia diagnoses of 1.3 million Swedish people born between 1920 and 1936. Analyses indicated very small or negligible causal effects of education on dementia risk. These findings suggest that education alone cannot be uncritically considered as a modifiable risk factor for dementia.
