    Recently, the perspective in long-term care has broadened include personal care needs of American adults who are able stay to live in the community despite chronic disabiliy. Long-term care can now take place in different settings that provide varied services. Home health care, adult day care, and other ways of providing care for people with chronic disabilities are developing in some communities. The focus of this report is on the types of home care services adults with chronic health problems need to continue to live in the community. This report presents selected data from the Home Care Supplement to the 1979 National Health Interview Survey. This survey is a cross-sectional nationwide survey by household interview of the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The population estimates for this report are based on the 1970 decennial census population projected to 1980, and therefore are slightly lower than if the population had been based on the 1980 Decennial Census. The Bureau of the Census documents the percent error of closure between the 1980 Census and preliminary estimates of the population of the United States for April 1, 1980, by age, race, and sex.
