Version V1

An Internet-based survey was administered to a national sample of individuals with recent nursing home experience. The survey elicited preferences using both contingent evaluation (CV) experiments as well as the assessment of quality of the nursing home. The CV experiments ask the respondent if they or their family member would be willing to move to a higher quality nursing home with a greater travel time. Information about the health status, demographic status, and economic status of the respondent and/or family member was also collected. The goals of the study were (1) To develop two alternative composite measures to the CMS 5 Star rating system that includes consumer preferences. (2) Measure variation in consumer preferences based on socio-demographics and health conditions.

To determine if respondent or their family member would be willing to move to a higher quality nursing home with a greater travel time.

An Internet-based survey was administered nationally to two separate cohorts based on a sample of qualified individuals with recent nursing home experience. Respondents were 18 years of age or older and either currently, or within the past 6 months, lived in a nursing home or had a family member currently, or within the past 6 months, living in a nursing home. Each cohort was exclusive, meaning a respondent in one cohort was not included in the other cohort.

Data from the first cohort was collected in 2017, and the second cohort was collected in 2019. The survey elicited respondent preferences using contingent evaluation (CV) experiments and quality assessments of the nursing home. The CV experiments asked the respondent if they or their family member would be willing to move to a higher quality nursing home with a greater travel time.

Additional data was collected about the health status, demographic status, and economic status of the respondent and/or family member. The goals of the study were (1) To develop two alternative composite measures to the CMS 5 Star rating system that includes consumer preferences. (2) Measure variation in consumer preferences based on socio-demographics and health conditions.

A national survey of nursing home residents and family members were recruited from the Survey Sampling International (SSI) multimillion member US online panel. Screening invitations were sent to panelists. Qualifications included (1) 18 years of age or older AND (2) resides in a nursing home currently or in the last 6 months OR (3) has a family member currently in a nursing home or in the past 6 months. Qualified participants completing the full survey were awarded SSI loyalty-program incentive points that could be exchanged online for gifts.

Cohort 1 Data contains 175 variables collected in 2017. Variables included respondent/ family member general attitudes toward their nursing home stay as well as the relationship between travel time and nursing home preferences. Additionally, respondent demographic information, economic status, and general health were part of the data collected.

Variables in Cohort 2 Data were collected in 2019 and mirrored the categories of information collected in 2017. Additional variables that were included were masked by ICPSR due to their qualitative nature.
