    Bei bisherigen Vorausberechnungen der zukünftigen Anzahl an Pflegefällen wurde meist vereinfachend unterstellt, dass die altersspezifische Pflegewahrscheinlichkeit (Prävalenz) in Zukunft konstant bleibt. Diese in der Wissenschaft als Status quo Hypothese bezeichnete Annahme ist allerdings nicht unumstritten. So ist bis heute nicht abschließend geklärt, wie sich der zu erwartende Zugewinn an Lebenserwartung auf die Pflegewahrscheinlichkeit im Alter auswirkt. Im folgenden Beitrag wird dem Leser durch die Analyse bisheriger empirischer Befunde zunächst ein Anhaltspunkt gegeben, ob in Zukunft eher mit einer Ab- oder Zunahme der Pflegewahrscheinlichkeit zu rechnen ist. Anschließend wird anhand eines Stromgrößenmodells aufgezeigt welche Bedingungen vorliegen müssen, damit es zu einem Anstieg oder Absinken der Pflegewahrscheinlichkeit kommt. Hierauf aufbauend wird ein Korridor bestimmt, in dem sich die zukünftige Anzahl an Pflegefällen bewegt.
