  1. Standard errors in parentheses *** p < 0.01, ** p < 0.05, * p < 0.11. Average marginal effects from the logistic model of informal care. The informal care among those with no functional limitation only concerned very few people, while there were many missing observations, so individuals with no functional limitation were dropped from this analysis
