From: Expansion or compression of long-term care in Germany between 2001 and 2009? A small-area decomposition study based on administrative health data

Study Type of health Ages Country/region Time Results Regional comparison Type of method
[25] Long-term care (in general; incidence) All ages Germany 1998–2006 (Slight) Compression no Age standardized prevalence, incidence estimations
[26] Long-term care (in general and severe) All ages North Rhine-Westfalia/Germany 1999–2005 Compression no Sullivan method
[27] Long-term care (transition rates) All ages Berlin/Germany 2000–2009 Compression (but: policy influence assumed) no Transition models
[28] Long-term care (by severity) All ages Germany 1999–2007 Dynamic equilibrium (Expansion for all types and stability for severe types of care) Federal states and 3 regions Sullivan method, standardized morbidity ratios
[29] Long-term care (by severity of disability) 60+ Germany 1999–2008 Dynamic Equilibrium (Expansion for all types and stability for severe types) no Sullivan method
[30] Long-term care (in general) 60+ Germany 1999–2005 Relative expansion no Sullivan method
