National Long Term Care Survey
The National Long Term Care Survey (NLTCS) is a set of six closely related surveys of chronic disability and disability-related characteristics – including health expenditures, Medicare service use, and the use of long-term care (LTC) – and the availability of personal, family, and community resources for caregiving among a nationally representative sample of 49,258 adults living in the United States who were enrolled in Medicare and aged 65 years or older (65+) during up to 6 survey years: 1982, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, and 2004. The NLTCS is a nationally representative sample that includes both community and institutional populations.
The NLTCS is longitudinal in the sense that all sampled individuals joined the survey either (1) in 1982 where age at enrollment was not capped or (2) shortly after reaching age 65 in 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, or 2004 or (3) shortly after reaching age 95 in 1994, 1999, or 2004 and remained in the survey until they either died or were lost to...
The primary funding for data collection and distribution of the 1982–2004 NLTCS was provided to Duke University through NIA grants R01-AG007198 and U01-AG007198; additional support was provided through NIA grants R01-AG046860, RF1-AG046860, R01-AG046860-03S1, R03-AG043036, R56-AG047402-01A1, and P30-AG034424-10S1.
