Alzheimer’s and dementia deaths above average is a comparison of the total number of Alzheimer’s and
dementia deaths in 2020 (through September 26) with the average number of Alzheimer’s and dementia deaths
from January 1 to September 30 in the last five years of available data (2014-2018). See the Technical Explanation
for more detail.

The national total of Alzheimer’s and dementia deaths does not equal the sum of the state totals due to a
difference in the methodology used to account for the most recent weeks of data.
