Summary: This working paper presents the results of a feasibility study about comparable statistics in the area of care of dependant adults in the European Union. The purpose was to investigate the needs for statistics in this area, to do an inventory and to analyse the existing data sources in Member States, at European level and in other international organisations and finally to make proposals for future developments. On the basis of available data, it is difficult to obtain comparable statistics covering care services for dependant adults. Nevertheless, this study presents available data on the number and characteristics of dependent adults, on care provided by the family and by care services at home or in institutions and on characteristics of care providers.
