Description/Abstract

This paper examines rates of moving into an institution after age 65, using data from waves 1-8 of the British Household Panel Survey. The mean rate of entry is 0.95% per annum. The rates rise with age, approximately doubling every 5 years, and are strongly related to a number of indicators of health. Those living alone, or never-married, are more likely to enter institutions, while those with a professional or managerial occupation have a decreased risk. In a multivariate analysis, gender and indicators of economic resources are not significantly associated with the likelihood of institutionalisation once health and socio-demographic factors are controlled for. The rate of entry to institutions for the years 1995-8 was significantly lower than that for 1992-4.
