This chapter explores the research on the economics of dementia in Ireland, which, while still in its infancy, is a growing field of analysis. It begins with a brief overview of the methods applied by economists to address the issues in relation to dementia and dementia care. The chapter describes three examples of these methods in an Irish context. The first presents the results of a cost-of-illness study which explores the economic burden of dementia in Ireland. The second presents the results from a microeconometric study which explores the drivers of formal and informal dementia care costs in Ireland. The third explores the continuing evolution of dementia care in Ireland and presents an argument that health technology assessment will play a central role in informing this process in the future.
