Abstract: The main aim of this thesis is to estimate the hazard of death (or survival) in long-term health care facilities in Quebec (CHSLD). The sociosanitary data from the Quebec Health Insurance Board (RAMQ) and the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) were used to build parametric proportional hazard models to analyze this phenomenon. The estimation of these models indicates that the patients who show a high risk of death in CHSLD are: males, oldest patients, Montrealers living in CHSLD, and those who have a worse health status before the beginning of the stay. The average life expectancy at the entrance of the CHSLD in Quebec is approximately 157 weeks (around 3 years). As for the relationship between average regional income and the risk of death in long-term health care facilities, the estimation based on matched data fails to its significance.
