Luppa et al present a thorough review of the
prevalence of depression in latest life. Similar to
previous reviews, this review reports that
prevalence rates vary greatly between studies. While
differences in inclusion criteria complicates comparison
with prior reviews, the ranges in prevalence rates
for major depression are not dissimilar: Djernes
reported 0.9–9.4%, Beekman et al reported 0.4–
10.2%, and the present review reports 4.6–9.3%
