description:
The National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) series provides information on health expenditures by or on behalf of families and individuals, the financing of these expenditures, and each person's use of services. The NMES Research File 22R contains use and expenditure data on a nationally representative sample of persons who spent any time in facilities for persons with mental retardation during 1987. These data are from the NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: INSTITUTIONAL POPULATION COMPONENT (ICPSR 9280), which is a survey of nursing/personal care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded and residents admitted to those facilities. Variables from the person-level data include demographic characteristics (age, race, sex), admission dates, vital status during 1987 (living or deceased), residence history, spouse characteristics (age, health), insurance coverage, income, and medical conditions (epilepsy, mental retardation, schizophrenia). The institutional stay data contain one record per stay for stays associated with a formal admission and/or discharge. Variables include information on episodes of institutional care, dates of stays (beginning date and ending date), and institutional characteristics such as size, ownership, and certification status. The expenditures and sources of payment billing data contain one record per bill for each eligible facility.
