Forecasting Nursing Home Utilization of Elderly Americans

Andrew Dick, Alan M. Garber, Thomas MaCurdy

NBER Working Paper No. 4107
Issued in June 1992
NBER Program(s):   AG   HE

This paper describes the likelihood and duration of nursing home admissions experienced by Americans after age 65. Our analysis generates predictions for a representative population, not for one selected to be at high risk of institutionalization, and should therefore be of direct relevance to the design of long-term care policies.
