  2. The groups differ by Autonomous Region and type of centre (type 1: home or residential centres, type 2 psychiatric or geriatric hospitals or centres for disabled persons), encompassing:
  3. Grouping 1: type-1 centres and Autonomous Regions 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 16 or type-2 centres and Autonomous Regions 1, 5, 9.
  4. Grouping 2: Type-1 centres and Autonomous Regions 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 14, 15, 17.
  5. Grouping 3: Type-2 centres and Autonomous Regions 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17.
  6. Column "n" shows the number of persons in each age-group after the cases had been weighted. The age groups used were 6-64 and over-64 years (Grouping 3). Consequently, the 6-79 age group in grouping 2 and all cases with no information whatsoever on age are set to "missing".
