Background and Purpose: The Short-Memory Ques-tionnaire (SMQ) developed by Koss et al. is a stan-dardized, validated reliable informant-based scale to assess everyday memory problems. In the previous study, we prepared its Japanese version and validated the reliability in assessing patients with Alzheimer Disease. In the present study, we examined the rela-tions between the performance evaluated by the Japa-nese version of the SMQ combined with the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and demographic variables (age, sex, and education).
