Abstract

Stratified normative data for age, education, and gender are provided for the 60-item Boston Naming Test (BNT) on 1026 older participants ages 50-95 years using overlapping age ranges. Tables are presented that convert BNT raw scores to scaled scores and percentiles. Mild dementia cases were eliminated using a comprehensive cognitive battery. In a companion paper we found significantly poorer mean BNT scores and increasing variability with successively older age groups and decreasing educational levels indicating the need for demographically stratified normative data when determining an individual's degree of impairment. These norms should be clinically useful when assessing suspected dementia cases.
