In recent years, the number of disabled elderly have increased rapidly. If not resolved in time, it may cause further social problems and affect the development of a harmonious society. Therefore, it is crucial to measure long-term care needs and analyze relevant social factors. We use CLHLS2014 data to measure the long-term care needs of the elderly in China, and use multiple linear regression analysis to further analyze the influencing factors and their urban-rural differences. Our results indicates that the long-term care demand level in different regions of China is quite different. The long-term care demand level in rural areas is generally higher than that in urban areas. Judging from the urban-rural differences in influencing factors, physical health, economic level, family care, pension concept and pension insurance have a significant impact on the long-term care needs of the elderly in rural areas; while the main influencing factors in urban areas are pension concepts, medical insurance and pension insurance. This shows that priority should be given to long-term care services in urban areas where medical insurance is better.
