Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey, Access to Care, Calendar Year 1993: [United States] (ICPSR 6637) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection is the third in a series of data releases from the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) relating to beneficiary access to medical care. The MCBS is a continuous, multipurpose survey of a representative sample of the Medicare population, both aged and disabled. Sample persons are interviewed three times a year over several years to form a continuous profile of their health care experience. Interviews are conducted regardless of whether the sample person resides at home or in a long-term care facility, using the questionnaire version appropriate to the setting. The MCBS also collects a variety of information about demographic characteristics (date of birth, sex, race, education, military service, and marital status), health status and functioning, access to care, sources of and satisfaction with care, insurance coverage, financial resources, and family supports. The 1993 interview data were collected during September through December of 1993, the seventh round of data collection. The 1993 data are designed to stand alone for cross-sectional analysis, or they can be used for longitudinal analysis. Weights are provided for both cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis.

Data Collection Notes:

On March 13, 1997, the HCFA withdrew the billing records data (Parts 27-33) from distribution.

Methodology

Sample:   Respondents were sampled from the Medicare enrollment file to be representative of the Medicare population as a whole and by age group: under 45, 45-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, and 85 and over. Because of interest in their special health care needs, the oldest old (85 and over) and the disabled (64 and under) were oversampled to permit detailed analysis of these subpopulations. The sample was drawn from 107 primary sampling units (PSUs). The 1993 Round 7 data include interviews for 10,936 persons in the longitudinal sample (Round 1 and 4 interviews completed), or initial interviews conducted in Round 4 (supplemental sample -- Round 4). An additional 1,927 interviews were completed for Round 7 supplemental sample persons. A total of 11,817 community interviews and 1,046 institutional interviews were completed for Round 7.
