Prince and colleagues (2012) conducted a population-based survey across rural and urban areas in Latin America, China, and India in order to examine the association between strain and caregiving for people with dementia. The study found that caregiver strain was higher among those caregivers who reduced their working hours to provide care in all sites with the exception of urban India. However, the findings were statistically significant in only six of the total eleven locations (across Latin America, China, and India) that the study was conducted.
