Little is known about how the proportions of dependency states have changed between generational cohorts of older people. This study aims to estimate years lived in different dependency states at age 65 years in 1991 and 2011, and make new projections of possible future demand for care.  The study estimates that further an extra 71 215 care home places could be required by 2025.
