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 NMES Research File 22R contains use and expenditure data on a nationally representative sample of persons who spent any time in facilities for persons with mental retardation during 1987. These data are from the NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1987: INSTITUTIONAL POPULATION COMPONENT (ICPSR 9280), which is a survey of nursing/personal care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded and residents admitted to those facilities. Variables from the person-level data include demographic characteristics (age, race, sex), admission dates, vital status during 1987 (living or deceased), residence history, spouse characteristics (age, health), insurance coverage, income, and medical conditions (epilepsy, mental retardation, schizophrenia). The institutional stay data contain one record per stay for stays associated with a formal admission and/or discharge. Variables include information on episodes of institutional care, dates of stays (beginning date and ending date), and institutional characteristics such as size, ownership, and certification status. The expenditures and sources of payment billing data contain one record per bill for each eligible facility.

Records in these files can be linked to each other and to all NMES public use tapes from the Institutional Population Component by using the person identifier (SPERIDX) and facility identifiers (OFIDX and FIDX). NMES research files are intended for users who are familiar with NMES public use tapes and have experience analyzing complex survey data. The files have not been subjected to the same level of quality control as standard NMES public use tapes, and therefore the data should be analyzed and interpreted with care. The three data files in this collection are similar in structure and content to those provided on 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). Users should consult the NMES Public Use Tape 17 documentation for details on file structure, data editing, and methods of creating constructed variables.

The NMES Institutional Population Component sample was based on a two-stage probability design with facilities selected in the first stage and persons within facilities in the second stage. 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. Research File 22R contains data on the residents of the facilities for persons with mental retardation.
