The 1990 National Nursing Home Survey Follow-Up (NNHSF) is part of a longitudinal study that followed the cohort of current residents and discharged residents sampled in the NATIONAL NURSING HOME SURVEY, 1985 (ICPSR 8914). The NNHSF extends the period of observation of these utilization patterns by approximately five years after the baseline nursing home interview. The primary purpose is to provide data on the flow of persons in and out of long-term care facilities and hospitals. The NNHSF was conducted in three waves. Wave I (ICPSR 9813) was conducted between August and December 1987, Wave II (ICPSR 9838) between July and November 1988, and Wave III between January and April 1990. For Wave III, information was collected on vital status, nursing home and hospital utilization since the last contact, current living arrangements, Medicare number, and source of payment. Information concerning the disposition of the subject's home was collected in Section J. Since these questions were only asked in Wave III, the information is not available for subjects who were known to be deceased at the time of the facility contact, the Next Of Kin survey, or Wave I or II of the follow-up. Those eligible for Section J represent a very select subgroup of the original cohort. In addition, 187 residents who were eligible for Section J did not receive the questionnaire because an appropriate respondent could not be identified.
These data are freely available.
