Adult Respite Care Funded or Provided by State Governments, 1992: [United States] (ICPSR 6584)

Principal Investigator(s):


This study surveyed state government agencies in the United States to determine the nature and extent of adult respite care delivered by these agencies or supported under their auspices. Officials of state agencies were queried on the types of respite care services offered, components of care, eligibility and service limitations, total number of people served, number of people with Alzheimer's disease served, how their programs were created, the cost of respite care to the state, and the funding mechanisms used to support respite care. The data include the name of each surveyed state agency, the name of its respite care program, and contact information for the agency.

Parts 12-14 comprise a relational database in dBaseIV format. Part 12 is a dBaseIV .dbf database file that contains numeric, logical, and character fields. Part 13 is a dBaseIV .dbt memo file comprising memo fields. Part 14 is a dBaseIV .mdx index file that links Parts 12 and 13. Parts 1-11 were generated by ICPSR from the original dBaseIV relational database provided by the principal investigator (Parts 12-14). Part 1 contains all the numeric, logical, and character fields included in Part 12. Parts 2-11 contain all the memo fields included in Part 13.
