Dying Broke: the Health and Retirement Study in New York Times
The New York Times featured the Health and Retirement Study in a data analysis package which assessed the long-term care needs and finances of those 65 and older.
The Times/KFF Health News data analysis was based on the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative longitudinal survey of about 20,000 people over age 50. The analysis defined people ages 65 and above as likely to need long-term care if they were assessed to have dementia, or if they reported having difficulty with two or more out of six activities of daily living.
