  2. aThe percentage of missing data for each variable was calculated by using as the denominator the total number of responses received in a particular geographic area. For example, the percentage of missing data for the gender variable in Nova Scotia was 2/53 = 4%
  3. bRefers to management model of participant’s primary facility. “Stand-alone” refers to a free-standing facility that has its own management staff, whereas “co-located” refers to a facility that shares management staff and resources with another, typically non-LTC, facility
