Without other social networks or sufficient resources to finance formal home care, they have a high risk of entering an institution if their health should deteriorate. Married persons with at least one child can, should the need for care arise, rely on a larger network, which increases the probability that responsibility for their care will be taken over by the family. This group has the lowest risk of institutionalisation. , married persons without children and unmarried persons with children, belong to the middle-risk group, because there is at least one family relative who may provide care should health problems arise.

This age range was chosen because those aged 45 in 2000 will be aged 75 in 2030. Thus, the care need projections are restricted to all persons aged 75 and older. The basic events used to calculate marital status transitions, as well as marital status-specific death rates, were collected from several publications of the German Statistical Office for the years 1990 to 2001. Since the information was only available for the age range one to 85, estimation procedures were applied to calculate the starting population, as well as the transition and death rates between ages 85 and 100+.

In 2003, women aged 75+ had an 87% lower risk of being married than men and were more than five times as likely to be widowed, almost three times as likely to be never-married and twice as likely to be divorced (Ziegler/Doblhammer 2007). As expected, the risk of being widowed is found to increase with age: for the age group 85+, it is three times higher than among 75-84-year-olds, but people aged 85+ are also less likely to be never married or divorced. The gender differences in marital status are the result of the lopsided sex ratio due to the higher life expectancies of females, as well as the high numbers of male deaths in the two world wars.
