The 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) Public Use Tape 8 contains full-year data from the Baseline Questionnaire of the Institutional Population Component. It updates data in the January 1, 1987, Resident File of Public Use Tape 2, NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: INSTITUTIONAL POPULATION COMPONENT (ICPSR 9280), with the addition of data on admissions to the facilities throughout 1987, as well as a revised sampling weight that adjusts for sampling frame duplication between the two kinds of facilities. The Baseline Questionnaire was administered to the sample residents' primary caregiver(s) in the facility. Other information on the sample residents' health and living experiences was gathered from next-of-kin, case managers, or other staff members. The items covered include residence history for up to five previous admissions, demographic characteristics and family composition of the sampled residents, health and functional status, medical conditions from the medical records, information on facility respondents, and, for the mentally retarded aged 18 and over, employment and training history.
