Canadian Journal of Public Health 95(5): 382-386

A study was conducted to describe the sociodemographic and care trends of long-term facility-based care (LTC) residents in Alberta, Canada, during 1988-99. There were 47 510 LTC residents during the study period. Most of the residents were females, urban residents and >=65 years old. The average age of residents significantly increased over time. Female and rural residents were significantly older than male and urban residents, respectively, over all years combined and each separate year.
