Risk of Institutionalization: 1977-1985


This analysis compares predictors of institutional residency in 1977 and 1985 among two national cohorts of individuals who responded to national surveys of nursing home and community-dwelling elderly persons. A state-level analysis of change in predictors of state nursing home use rates for 1976 and 1986 was also conducted using aggregate state sociodemographic and Medicaid policy variables. Finally, a model was estimated to predict state-to-state variation in nursing home use in 1986. [37 PDF pages]
