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)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Health and Human Services. Agency for Health Care Policy and Research
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. Public Use Tape 17 is the first release of expenditure and use data from the IPC. It provides demographic information such as race, age, sex, education, veteran status, medical history, income, family, date of admission, vital status, residence history, use of long-term care, insurance coverage, and home ownership. Additional information covers the respondent's institutional stays in 1987, dates and lengths of stays, and characteristics of the institution, including size, type, ownership, and certification status. Also provided are data on expenses and sources of payments for services rendered in nursing and personal care homes.

Data Types: survey data
Data Collection Notes:
Records in these files can be linked to all NMES public use tapes from the Institutional Population Component survey by using the person identifier (SPERIDX) and facility identifiers (OFIDX and FIDX).
Sample: The INVENTORY OF LONG-TERM CARE PLACES, 1986 [ICPSR 9169] served as the sampling frame for the 1987 sample of long-term care facilities. 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.
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Standardized missing values.
