NOTE: Estimates may not add to totals because of rounding.
† Estimate does not meet standards of reliability or precision because the sample size is between the sample size is between 30 and 59, or the sample size is greater than 59 but has a relative standard error of 30% or more.
RCFs were most commonly located in the West (42% of all RCFs) and least commonly located in the Northeast (8%) (data not shown).
RCFs in the West were predominantly small, while RCFs in the Northeast were mostly large. RCFs in the Midwest and South were more evenly distributed among small, medium, and large facilities (Figure 3).
In the United States, RCFs provided 177 beds per 1,000 persons aged 85 and over (Figure 4).
The West had the largest supply of RCF beds per 1,000 persons aged 85 and over (245 beds), and the Northeast had the smallest supply (131 beds).

NOTE: Beds per 1,000 persons were calculated by dividing the number of residential care beds by the number of persons aged 85 and over, multiplied by 1,000.
