The study involved 50,000 residents in one of the central districts of Norway. Of these, 222 turned out to have various stages of age-related dementia.

The subjects were asked questions concerning their memory, for example, if there is a problem with remembering dates, names, faces, and the chronology of events. Almost all of these points showed that men have a worse memory than women do.

When answering 8 questions of 9, men reported memory problems more often than women. However, the most difficult thing for both men and women turned out memorizing names and dates. So, 86.5% women and 89.7% men had a bad memory for names; 64.7% women and 74.9% men – for dates.

Professor Jostein Holmen from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim) said they were surprised that men were more forgetful than women. A similar phenomenon had not been documented. They were also surprised that forgetfulness was about the same in men at the age of 30 and 60.
