Answer

There is no specific data collected to detect specific rates of delirium between races in the Emergency Department. In the United States, dementia is more prevalent in African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, intermediate in Latinos, Pacific Islanders and Whites, and lowest among Asian Americans. [4]
