National Medical Expenditure Survey, 1987: Institutional Population Component, Linked MADRS Data for Medicare Beneficiaries Sampled in Nursing and Personal Care Homes and Facilities for Persons With Mental Retardation [Research File 36R] (ICPSR 6586) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

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 Institutional Population Component (IPC) is a survey of nursing and personal care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded and residents admitted to those facilities. Information was collected on facilities and their residents at several points during 1987. Use and expenditure estimates for institutionalized persons can be combined with those from the Household Component for composite estimates covering most of the civilian population. Information on facilities and residents was collected from facility administrators and caregivers, with additional information collected from next-of-kin or other knowledgeable respondents. These data were supplemented by Medicare claims information for covered sample persons. Research File 36 provides information from the Medicare Automated Data Retrieval System (MADRS) for a subset of persons from File 1 of NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: INSTITUTIONAL POPULATION COMPONENT, FACILITY USE AND EXPENDITURE DATA FOR NURSING AND PERSONAL CARE HOME RESIDENTS [PUBLIC USE TAPE 17] (ICPSR 6158) and a subset of persons from File 1 of NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: INSTITUTIONAL POPULATION COMPONENT, FACILITY USE AND EXPENDITURE DATA FOR RESIDENTS OF FACILITIES FOR PERSONS WITH MENTAL RETARDATION [RESEARCH FILE 22R] (ICPSR 6467). Six data files are provided for Research File 36R, all of which contain demographic data such as age, sex, and race. Other variables common to all parts are facility type, person number, sample person identifier, reimbursement amount by Medicare, and total charges reported by provider. Parts 1-6 cover, respectively, Part B Payment Records, Part B Outpatient Bill Records, Part B Home Health Bill Records, Part A Inpatient/Skilled Nursing Facilities Bill Records, Part A Home Health Bill Records, and Part A Hospice Bill Records.

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:   assisted living facilities, developmentally disabled, facilities, health care costs, health care services, health expenditures, health insurance, health services utilization, insurance coverage, long term care, medical care, Medicare, nursing homes, payment methods, population characteristics

Geographic Coverage:   United States

Time Period:  

  • 1987

Date of Collection:  

  • 1987

Universe:   All persons (other than staff) who spent one or more nights in 1987 as residents of a nursing or personal care home or a facility for the mentally retarded.

Data Types:   survey data

Data Collection Notes:

(1) NMES research files are intended for users who are familiar with NMES public use tapes and have experience analyzing complex survey data. These data files have not been subjected to the same level of editing and quality control as the NMES public use tapes. The data in these files should be analyzed and interpreted with care. (2) These files can be linked to each other and all other public use datasets from the 1987 IPC by using the person identifier (SPERIDX) and the facility identifier (OFIDX).

Methodology

Sample:   The NMES Institutional Population Component sample was based on a two-stage probability design with facilities selected in the first stage and persons within facilities chosen in the second stage. Three strata were used for the facility sample: nursing and personal care homes with three or more beds, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded with 3-15 beds, and all remaining facilities for the mentally retarded with more than 15 beds. A total of 810 nursing and personal care homes and 691 facilities for the mentally retarded were sampled.
