This ANCIEN research report is concerned with the analysis of the supply of informal care provided by family and friends in Europe, using data on provision of informal care from the 2007 Eurobarometer survey, which includes all the countries in the ANCIEN study. The research uses multivariate analysis of the provision of informal help with personal care tasks in Europe, taking into account socio-demographic factors likely to affect the provision of informal care, including gender, age, marital status and education, and also taking into account differences in long-term systems. The key conclusion of the report is that differences in informal care provision in European countries are affected, not only by differences in socio-demographic factors, but also by differences in long-term care systems between countries.
