Abstract

The utilisation of ILTC needs to be monitored by meaningful key figures over time. The length of stay, as proposed here, provides information on life expectancy and ILTC prevalence collapsed into one measure. This article reports the length of stay and substantiates its increase over time (in women, the increase ended in 2007). It is recommended to regularly update the time series by using official statistics.
