The figure shows the prevalence of stroke among residential care residents, by sex and age group, based on findings from the National Survey of Residential Care Facilities conducted in the United States in 2010. About 12.0% of male residents and 10.5% of female residents had been diagnosed with a stroke. Residents aged 65-74 years had the highest prevalence of stroke (14.6%) compared with the other age groups.

* Respondents, who typically were residential care community directors, were asked, "As far as you know, has a doctor or other health professional ever diagnosed this resident with a stroke?"

Residential care residents refer to persons living in assisted living and similar places (e.g., personal care homes and adult care homes, board and care homes, and adult foster care) on any given day in 2010. Residents in nursing homes were excluded. Those with missing data for stroke (0.6%) were excluded.

Differences between residents aged 65–74 years and residents in the other three age groups were statistically significant at p<0.05.
