  1. Legend: First column describes the variable, second column gives the value. The third column lists the proportion of first-time users of LTC in 2011. This was calculated as the proportion of subjects who utilized any form of LTC in 2011, but did not utilize any type of LTC in 2008–2010. Prevalent cases (with any prior use of LTC in 2008–2010) were excluded from both numerator and denominator
