Economic impact of stroke in Australia

The Deloitte Access Economics Report, “The economic impact of stroke in Australia”, was commissioned by the National Stroke Foundation in 2012 and provides the first updated figures on the incidence, prevalence and cost of stroke in almost a decade.

Over 420,000 people were living with stroke in Australia in 2012 – an increase of 20 percent on the previous estimate of 350,000. Two-thirds of those survivors are dependent on another person for their daily needs.
