Health Reform Monitoring Survey, First Quarter 2013 (ICPSR 35624)
In January 2013, the Urban Institute launched the Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS), a quarterly survey of the nonelderly population, to explore the value of cutting-edge, Internet-based survey methods to monitor the Affordable Care Act (ACA) before data from federal government surveys are available. Topics covered by the first round of the survey (first quarter 2013) include self-reported health status, type of and satisfaction with current health insurance coverage, access to and use of health care, and health care affordability. Additional information collected by the survey includes age, education, race, Hispanic origin, gender, income, household size, housing type, marital status, employment status, United States citizenship, smoking, internet access, home ownership, body mass index, sexual orientation, and whether the respondent reported an ambulatory care sensitive condition or a mental or behavioral condition.
One or more files in this data collection have special restrictions ; consult the restrictions note to learn more. You can apply online for access to the restricted-use data. A login is required to apply.
As explained in the ICPSR Processing Notes in the codebook, ICPSR restricted three variables from general dissemination for reasons of confidentiality. Users interested in obtaining the restricted data must complete an Agreement for the Use of Confidential Data, specify the reasons for the request, and obtain IRB approval or notice of exemption for their research. Apply for access to the restricted data through the ICPSR restricted data contract portal, which can be accessed via the study home page.
Any public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.

Scope of Study
Geographic Coverage: United States
The principal investigators did not provide the open-ended response variables and many variables from the KnowledgePanel profile questionnaire.
The Stata version of the data file, which is the original data format provided by the principal investigators, is declared as multiple imputation data (mi set).
Additional information about this survey is available on the HRMS Web site.
Sample: Each quarterly HRMS sample is drawn from the KnowledgePanel, a probability-based, nationally representative Internet panel maintained by GfK Custom Research. The first quarter 2013 HRMS combines data from the January-February and February-March 2013 pilot surveys.
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:
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
Original ICPSR Release: 2015-01-09
