ABSTRACT

 The Study and Data Files

  The Study

 The Longitudinal Study of Aging is based on the Supplement
 on Aging to the 1984 National Health Interview Survey.  The
 description of the National Health Interview Survey has been
 published by the National Center for Health Statistics in a
 monograph by Kovar and Poe.  The description of the
 Supplement on Aging has also been published by the National
 Center for Health Statistics in monograph by Fitti and
 Kovar.  Users of the LSOA data should be familiar with
 both of these documents, which are sold by the Government
 Printing Office.

 Familiarity with those documents including the
 questionnaires used on the baseline surveys (and the LSOA
 questionnaires that are included as appendixes to this
 documentation) is important for anyone wishing to publish
 data derived from these files.  Analysts need to know about
 survey procedures, response rates, estimation, and sampling
 errors.

 Familiarity with the questionnaires is essential.  Users
 must understand the skip patterns on the questionnaires if
 they are to use the files correctly.  If a question was not
 asked for any reason - the answer to a previous question
 showed that asking the next question was not relevant, the
 question was appropriate only for a self-respondent and
 another person answered the questions, or (in 1986) the
 individual was not in the sample - the nonparticipation is
 coded into the nonresponse category.  There is no obvious
 differentiation on the data file documentation between the
 individual who did not answer the question (or for whom the
 interviewer failed to record it) and the person who was not
 asked the question.  Only familiarity with the skip patterns
 on the questionnaires (and for 1986 data only exclusion from
 the sample) reveals the differences among people placed into
 that category.

 Data for 1984 are from personal interviews in the
 participants' home.  All interviews were conducted by U.S.
 Bureau of the Census interviewers with special training on
 this survey.

 Data for 1986, 1988 and 1990 are from Computer-Assisted
 Telephone Interviews with mail follow-up.  The interviewing
 and mailing for these interviews was also done by the Bureau
 of the Census staff.  Using the telephone to follow older
 people who had already participated in a household survey
 was deemed feasible after a study of older people's
 responses to telephone interviewing.  Computer-Assisted
 Telephone Interviewing has since been used on other studies
 of older people, including the NHANES Epidemiological
 Followup Study, which is also conducted by NCHS.

 To increase the accuracy of the data, and to decrease the
 loss to followup, records for participants in the Supplement
 on Aging who gave permission were matched with two other
 files.

 One is the National Death Index - a file of all deaths in
 the United States that is maintained by the National Center
 for Health Statistics.  It has been accessed for the LSOA by
 permission of the Vital Registrars in each of the
 Registration Areas.

 The other is the Medicare Files maintained by the Health
 Care Financing Administration.  It has been accessed for the
 LSOA by the permission of HCFA obtained only after the
 written promise of confidentiality of the National Center
 for Health Statistics, the LSOA project officer, and the
 person maintaining the LSOA files.

 Access to these files meets all of the requirements of the
 Privacy and Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of
 1988.

  Data Files

 All of the data from all sources are on one computer tape
 divided into three files - a person file and two files of
 matched Medicare data.

 They are growing files for a longitudinal study.  Because
 the data are released to all users as quickly as they become
 available, the files are not final - nor will they be until
 all data collection has been completed.  However, waiting
 for a final file would mean that data could not be released
 until the study is over, which would not contribute to
 research on aging.

 Therefore, new data are added at the end of the file so that
 people who have used the earlier versions of the file will
 find everything exactly where it was before.  These notes
 focus on additions and changes to the files.  New users may
 find the format confusing because data are not necessarily
 in the order in which they might be anticipated.  The Table
 of Contents is organized by year and mode of data collection
 - not in the order in which data appear on the file - to
 help new (and old) users find they data.

 Information in Part III (1988 intervw) & Part IV (1990 intervw)

 A. The sample is larger.

 The sample for the 1988 and 1990 interview was larger than
 that for the 1986 interview.  In 1986 there was subsampling
 for persons age 70-79 and for people who were not black.
 Because the 1984 files were not final when the 1986 sample
 was selected, a few people age 80 and over and a few black
 people were also excluded.  Data for all of the people who
 were age 70 or older when they participated in the
 Supplement on Aging in 1984 were included in the 1988 and
 1990 sample.

 Therefore, instead of the 5,151 records that were on
 Versions 1 and 2, there are 7,527 records on the person file
 for Versions 3 and 4.  All information from the 1984
 interviews, the 1988 interview, the 1990 interview and the
 National Death Index and Medicare matches is on the Version
 4 file for the added sample persons.   There is, of course,
 no information about them from the 1986 interview.

 B.   Part III contains information from the 1988 interview.

 Changes in the questionnaire were minor.  A few questions
 were added (see Appendix).

 Part IV contains information from the 1990 interview.  There
 were major additions to the questionnaire.  The amount of
 information on the person's economic status was greatly
 expanded (see Appendix)

 In addition, Version 4 contains the match with the National
 Death Index for 1989, and the match with Medicare records
 for 1990.  That information is located on the file where it
 was in previous versions.

 2.   File format

 New information is added at the end of LSOA files so that
 users of earlier versions will not have to rewrite their
 programs.  In general, that rule has been followed for
 Version 4 - information that was on the Versions 2 and 3
 files is in the same tape location without change.

 There are important exceptions.

 On the person file, the format in columns 1-1720 is
 unchanged and the new information begins in column 1725.
 Almost all of the data in columns 1-1720 are also unchanged.
 However, data in the fields containing information about the
 National Death Index and Medicare matches have been updated.
 Most of the information appears in the same columns as in
 prior documentation and the format is unchanged, but the
 contents have been updated to reflect matches that were made
 after Version 3 was released.

 On the Part A Medicare match file the information is in
 exactly the same order as before.  However, when there was
 no match with Medicare records from participants in the 1988
 interview and for all of the sample persons who were located
 and interviewed in 1988, the Medicare, Railroad Retirement,
 or Health Insurance Claim number was either asked again or
 verified as part of the 1990 interview.  The augmented and
 corrected file was sent to the Health Care Financing
 Administration to be matched with all Medicare claims
 records for 1989 through 1990.

 The Version 4 file includes more than the additional data
 from the 1989-90 matches for people interviewed in 1990.  It
 includes data for people whose Social Security (or other)
 numbers were not correctly reported in earlier interviews
 and who could not be matched.

 On the Other Medicare file, data for 1990 are added after
 data for the earlier years.

 Frequency counts on the documentation

 The sample for the 1986 Longitudinal Study of Aging
 interview included only part of the participants in the 1984
 Supplement on Aging who were age 70 and over in 1984.

 Frequencies based on the 1986 sample count for variables
 from the 1984 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the
 1984 Health Insurance Supplement, and the SOA reflect the
 additional 2,376 people added to the 1988 sample.  The
 number of blanks for 1986 LSOA has been increased by 2,376.


 Weights and other Sample Design Issues

  Weights

 To produce national estimates that represent the experience
 of the people age 70 and over who were living in the
 community in 1984, the data must be weighted.

 Version 4 of the LSOA Public Use File has three weight
 fields: the Interim LSOA Weight (1138-1143), the Final LSOA
 Weight (1144-1149), and the Final SOA Weight (1657-1662).
 The Interim LSOA Weight was put on the Version 1 file for
 people interested in design effects due to the complex
 sample design.  It still serves that purpose.

 Whether analysts use the Final LSOA Weight (1144-1149) or
 the Final SOA Weight (1657-1662) depends on the analyst's
 choice of data points for the analysis.

 Analysts wishing to use data from all four waves are
 restricted to the sample included in the 1986 interview and
 should use the Final LSOA Weight.  Analysts wishing to use
 data from the larger sample should use only data from 1984,
 1988 and 1990 and should use the Final SOA Weight.

  Explanation of LSOA Final Weight

 Because the sample of persons selected for the 1986 LSOA did
 not include all 1984 Supplement on Aging (SOA) participants
 who were 70 years and over, new weights were calculated.
 The 1986 Final LSOA Weights were calculated using the same
 post-stratification cells as those used for the SOA.  The
 SOA was post-stratified to the National Health Interview
 Survey (NHIS) for the 12 cells (3 age x 2 sex x 2 race) that
 were used for post-stratification of the NHIS.  Population
 estimates for those 12 cells are, therefore, the same except
 for rounding.

 The Final LSOA Weight produces estimates for the data
 collected on the 1986 LSOA sample persons.

 Final SOA Weight

 The sample for the 1988 and 1990 LSOA included everyone who
 was 70 years old and over at the time of the 1984 SOA.  The
 Final SOA Weight that is on the Version 3 of the LSOA Public
 Use File is the same as the Final SOA Weight on the SOA
 Public Use File.  A more detailed description of the SOA
 weights is in Reference 2.

 Strata and Primary Sampling Units

 The National Health Interview Survey is based on a complex
 sample design that includes clustering.  In general, the
 effect of such a design is to increase the variance of the
 estimates.  Therefore, statistics that did not take the
 sample design into account might show confidence intervals
 narrower and test statistics significant more often than
 they should be.

 There are computer programs designed to deal with such
 complex designs.  Such programs need to know the stratum and
 the Primary Sampling Unit designation for each sample
 person.  Therefore the information is on the person file.

 Questions included in 1988 that were not included in 1986

 In addition to the larger sample, questions that were not
 asked in 1986 were added to the 1988 interview.  They
 include:

      Questions that were on the 1987 Decedent Follow-up

      A question on family income using the wording of the
      National Health Interview Survey

      A question on number of rooms using the wording of the
      American Housing Survey

      Questions on number of living children and frequency
      and type of contact with those children that had been
      asked in 1984

      A question on when someone moved in was added to
      balance the one on when the sample person moved

 The 1990 interview

 The 1990 sample has the same base as the 1988 sample - all
 participants in the SOA who were age 70 or over.  Persons
 known to have died by 1988 were excluded from the interview
 sample; they can be located in the NDI or best estimate
 variables in the documentation.  Persons who did not respond
 to earlier interviews were included in the interview sample.

 The questionnaire for 1990 was expanded to add a great deal
 of economic information.  Questions on sources of income
 that were asked in 1984 were repeated to permit analysis of
 change in this cohort over time and have been included on
 the Version 4 file.  All of the questions comparable to
 those on the 1990 National Health Interview Survey were
 added.  Questions on interest and assets have been added.
 However, the information is not included on the Version 4
 file.  The data are being evaluated and edited and will be
 released, if appropriate, on a later version of the tape.
 Some of these questions will make it possible to compare the
 status of LSOA participants in 1990 with their status in
 1984.  Some will make it possible to compare longitudinal
 data from the LSOA with the cross-sectional data from the
 NHIS.  Others will permit more detailed analysis of the
 economic status of the LSOA participants in 1990, people who
 are now age 75 and older.

 Future Data Releases

 Permission has been obtained to match the decedents
 identified on the NDI match with the multiple-cause-of-death
 files.  That information will be released on a floppy disk
 in late 1991 so that users can add it to their SOA or LSOA
 files.  The date of death (which is already on the LSOA
 file) and multiple causes of death will be provided for all
 participants in the 1984 SOA who are known, or who are
 presumed, to have died.

 The response rate to the 1990 Economic Supplement, which was
 a mail survey, was much lower than the rate for the regular
 1990 LSOA interview, which was a telephone survey.  Item
 non-response was also higher than on the telephone and
 respondents were sometimes inconsistent in their answers.
 Therefore, those data are being processed separately from
 the main interview and the information judged to be useful
 will be released separately on a floppy disk.  Analysts can
 link data from that disk to their Version 4 file.

 Because there will be no more interviews for the
 Longitudinal Study of Aging, there will not be vast
 quantities of information to add to the file.  The plan is
 that all updates, such as the NDI and Medicare match data,
 will be issued on floppy disks so that people who have
 purchased Version 4 can update their file inexpensively.


 Notes on Specific Variables

  General Information

  SP refers to Sample Person

 There are inconsistencies in the counts of blanks occurring
 in sets of variables.  An example is the nursing home stay
 questions.  The number of blanks in the nursing home stay
 questions is 2,556 except for the variables about who paid
 for the care.  There are 2,557 blanks for these.  We did not
 attempt to locate and move the one person in this situation
 or in other situations where the number of blanks differed
 by a small number.

 National Health Interview Survey Core Questionnaire:

      Processing Week Code

 The Sunday night prior to interview week 01 in Quarter 1 is
 January 8, 1984.  Quarter is in position 5.

      NHIS Poverty Index

 Based on family size, number of children under 18 years of
 age and family income using the 1983 poverty levels
 published by the Census Bureau in August 1984.

      Size of Family Recode

 A person on active duty in the military but living at home
 is included in the count even though he or she is excluded
 from the survey.

      Respondent

 For basic questionnaire only.  Refer to position 704 for SOA
 respondent.

      Type of PSU

 Based on 1970 Census area definition.

 Supplement on Aging:

      Length of Time Married

 Includes people with unknown marital status (from Core) if
 information was provided.

      Number of Living Children

 Includes people with unknown marital status (from Core) if
 information was provided.

      Total Number of Living Children

 Includes people with unknown marital status (from Core) if
 information was provided.

      Difficulty Performing Following Activities Without Help

 These activities are 10 work related tasks that indicate the
 person's physical ability to do work.

      NHIS Diagnostic Code

 The following characters appear on the public use tape as
 part of the NHIS diagnostic codes:

      -  a code preceded by an "-" refers to an impairment
      code. An impairment is denoted by an "X" in Health
      Interview Survey Medical Coding Manual and Short Index
      (NHIS coding manual),

      -  a "-" appearing in the decimal position refers to
      other conditions not in .0 to .9 and is denoted by an
      ".X" in the NHIS coding manual, and

      -  an "&" appearing in the decimal position refers to
      an unknown or unspecified origin and is denoted by a
      ".Y" in the HIS coding manual.

 These characters on the tape differ from the characters in
 the HIS coding manual because of the IBM translation that
 occurs when the tape is created.  Additional information
 about the condition coding in the NHIS can be found in the
 Health Interview Survey Medical Coding Manual and Short
 Index.

      Activities of Daily Living (ADL's)

 The number of ADL's refers to the number of "yes" responses
 to this series of questions where a response is given to at
 least one of the questions.  The "unknown" category applies
 only when all ADL information is unknown.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

      Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL's)

 The number of IADL's refers to the number of "yes" responses
 to this series of questions where a response is given to at
 least one of the questions.  The "unknown" category applies
 only when all IADL information is unknown.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

      Help With ADL(s) and IADL(s) Recode

 Unknowns are counted as no help.


 1986 LSOA Version 2:

      Type of Interview

 There were 434 noninterview cases.  One noninterview was
 given by a proxy respondent.

      Sex

 One sample person's sex in location 717 is not the same as
 that in location 20.  Sex in location 717 was used for post-
 stratification.

      Transition Living Recode

 Excludes one person who was reported initially as in a
 nursing home but who was reported not in a nursing home
 later in the interview.

      Migration - Residence Move Recode

 The Migration - Intercounty Residence Move Since SOA
 Interview Recode treats an interstate move as an intercounty
 move.

      Reason Moved Residence Since SOA - Recode

 Code 02, "Live closer to or with children or siblings,"
 includes any other relatives.  In the 1986 documentation,
 the relatives were siblings.

      Activities of Daily Living (ADL's)

 The ADL's include 17 sample persons who were in a nursing
 home or other institution but who responded to questions
 about who helped and who was paid.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

      Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL's)

 The IADL's include 17 sample persons who were in a nursing
 home or other institution but who responded to the IADL
 questions.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

      Number of Different Times in Nursing Home Since
      1984 SOA Interview

 The count of sample persons currently in the nursing home
 excludes three sample persons who responded to this
 question.

      Month Admitted to Nursing Home the First or Only
      Time Since 1984 SOA Interview

 The count of sample persons currently in the nursing home
 excludes three sample persons who responded to this
 question.

      Year When Admitted to Nursing Home the First or Only
      Time Since 1984 SOA Interview

 The count of sample persons currently in the nursing home
 excludes three sample persons who responded to this
 question.

      Nursing Home Stay Recode

 Includes one person who was reported initially as in a
 nursing home who later in the interview was reported as not
 in a nursing home.

      1987 Decedent Followup Date of Death

 Three persons were reported alive.  Investigation shows that
 two persons are deceased and one is alive.

 The sample person's date of death may differ from the
 information reported in the 1986 LSOA.

      1987 Decedent Followup Place of Death

 The sample person's place of death may differ from the
 information reported in the 1986 LSOA.


 1988 LSOA Version 3:

      Migration - Residence Move Recode

 The Migration - Intercounty Residence Move Since Last
 Interview Recode treats an interstate move as an intercounty
 move.

      Main Reason Moved Residence Since Last Interview -
      Recode

 There is one sample person whose main reason for moving is
 not one of the 3 reported reasons.  The main reason for
 moving is code 01, "poor health of sample person"; the
 reason given for the move is 05, "money and financial
 considerations."

      Activities of Daily Living (ADL's)

 The ADL's include 5 sample persons who were in a nursing
 home or other institution but who responded to questions
 about who helped and who was paid.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

 The inconsistencies in the Version 3 documentation that
 existed in the frequencies between two variables that
 pertain to activities of daily living - "Is This Help Paid
 For" and "Type of Helper Paid" were located and resolved.
 The frequencies in the Version 4 file reflect the revisions.

      Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL's)

 The number of responses in the "Doesn't Do" category for
 having difficulty using the telephone (loc. 1415=111) is not
 consistent with the distribution of the responses in the
 variable "Doesn't Do Because of a Health or Physical
 Problem" (loc. 1416 =112).  After some checking, it appears
 possible that the number of "yes" responses reported in loc.
 1416 should be 93 rather than 94.  The inconsistency between
 loc. 1415 and loc. 1416 causes the sum of the counts for
 codes 1, 2, 3 and 9 in loc. 1482 to be one less than the
 "yes" count reported in loc. 1481.

 The IADL's include 3 sample persons who were in a nursing
 home or other institution but who responded to the IADL
 questions.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Therefore, spouse and/or children who provided help are
 counted as unpaid help.

 The inconsistencies in the Version 3 documentation that
 existed in the frequencies between two variables that
 pertain to instrumental activities of daily living:  "Is
 This Help Paid For" and "Type of Helper Paid" were located
 and resolved.  The frequencies in the Version 4 file reflect
 the revisions.


 1990 LSOA Version 4:

 National Health Interview Survey Core Questionnaire

      Processing Week Code

 The variable, Processing Week Code (Week Within Quarter) in
 loc. 1161-1162, was updated to include the 1984 data for
 those sample persons who were added to the 1988 sample.

 Supplement on Aging

 The ADL's include sample persons who were in a nursing home
 or other institution but who responded to questions about
 who helped and who was paid.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

      Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL's)

 The IADL's include sample persons who were in a nursing home
 or other institution but who responded to the IADL
 questions.

 Spouse and/or children of the sample person were not asked
 if their help was paid.

 Spouse and/or children who provided help are counted as
 unpaid help.

 LSOA Medicare Record - 1984-1990:

 The number of Medicare claim records included on the file
 for 1988 and 1989 is less than the number for other years.
 The reason for the variation cannot be explained at this
 time.

 There are discrepancies between the information reported in
 the Medicare claims data and the LSOA data.

      Sex

 There are sample persons whose sex as reported on the
 Medicare file does not agree with their sex reported on the
 LSOA file.

      Year of Birth

 The year of birth as reported on the Medicare file does not
 necessarily agree with the year of birth on the LSOA file.

Appendix E-County Adjacency

 The adjacency code classification scheme has been taken from U.S. Department
 of Agriculture, Agricultural Economic Report No. 272, March 1975.
 Counties are classified into metro and nonmetro categories either by
 size of the metro area of which each metro county is a part, or for the
 nonmetro counties, by the number of urban residents and geographic proximity
 to the metro areas.

 All U.S. countires and county equivalents are grouped according to their
 official OMB 1973 metro-nonrnetro designation, based on the 1950 census.

 The county groups are coded as follows:

   CODE       NAME                                 DESCRIPTION

Appendix F-National Health Interview Survey Diagnostic Recode C

 Diagnostic Recode C

 Chronic Conditions and lmpairments

 Definition of Chronic Condition and Impairment - In most cases, a chronic
 condition or an impairment is any departure from normal health with onset
 more than 3 months from date of Interview.Certain chronic conditions
 and impairments are classified as chronic, however, regardless of date of
 onset. Complications of pregnancy are always classified as acute. All chronic
 conditions and impairments are counted whether or not they necessitated
 activity restriction or medical care. Impairments coded with an "X" in the
 first digit are , by definition chronic

 This recode is different from Chronic Condition Recode 3, used prior to 1982.

Appendix G-Independent/Dependent Status in ADL's

  Independent/Dependent Status In Activities Of Daily Living

 The Independent/Dependent Status in Activities of Daily Living variable is
 based on a summative index of independence in activities
 of daily living, a modification of the Katz Index. It is calculated by First
 classifying each respondent as independent or dependent in each of the
 five personal care activities: bathing/showering, dressing, eating, getting
 in or out of bed or chair, and using the toilet.  The second step computes
 the number of ADL's in which the respondent is dependent.  This step
 yields the respondent's index score.  Respondents with index scores of
 zero are the most independent; respondents with index scores of five are the
 most dependent.

 Independent in personal care activities is defined as independent or not
 needing help to perform all five ADL's: bathing/showering,
 dressing, eating, getting in or out of bed or chair, and using the toilet.
 Dependent in personal care activities is defined as needing help from
 another person to perform, or not performing, at least one five ADL's:
 bathing/showering, dressing, eating, getting in or out of bed or chair,
 and using the toilet.

Appendix H-Procedure For Refining NDI Match

 Procedure For Refining NDI Match

 Linkage of survey data to other data bases is one way of improving and
 expanding the amount of information available without adding additional
 burden on the respondent. In some circumstances, linkage can provide access
 to information not readily available to household respondents.
 One such data base is the National Death Index (NDI), a file of the deaths
 occurring in the United States.* Linkage to this data base allows analysis
 of causes of death and related information that cannot be known when the
 person is interviewed.

 In order to determine how health practices and conditions are related to how
 long people live, the Supplement on Aging (SOA) study design included
 matching to the NDI. All respondents (or their proxies) were told that NCHS
 "... would like to refer to statistical records maintained by the National
 Center for Health Statistics." The respondents were asked to provide
 all information (including Social Security Number) that is recommended for
 linkage with the NDI.

 Items Collected

 The information collected during the SOA interview to facilitate matching to
 the NDI included:

        I.   Month, Day, and Year of Birth
        2.   Full name, including First and Last Names and Middle Initial
        3.   Father's Last Name
        4.   Social Security Number
        5.   Sex
        6.   Race
        7.   Marital Status
        8.   State of Residence
        9.   State (or Country) of Birth

 (Only one other item of information can be used as part of the NDI matching
 process, the actual or estimated date of death; information which is not
 available since the survey respondents were living at the time of the SOA
 interview).

 National Center for Health Statistics, Users Manual,the National Death Index.
 DHHS Pub. No. (PHS) 81-1148. Public Health Service.  Hyattsville,
 MD. U.S. Government Printing Office, September 1981.

 At least one of the following combinations of data items is required before
 an NDI match will be attempted:

        1.   First and Last Name AND Social Security Number

        2.   First and Last Name AND Month and Year of Birth

 Records which did not have at least one of these combinations were rejected
 by the NCHS NDI edit program; 215 such records from the SOA were
 not submitted to NDI for matching. For many of these records the respondent
 red to provide the necessary information; the rest could not
 be matched because incomplete information was available from the SOA.

 The Procedure

 The NDI Retrieval Program searches the NDI file to determine whether a
 particular NDI death record qualifies as a possible record match with
 a particular input record. To qualify as a possible match, both records must
 satisfy at least one of twelve conditions set by the Retrieval Program.

 These matching criteria are designed to maximize the number of true matches
 identified.  Because of this design feature, the Retrieval Program also
 generates a significant number of false matches (false positives). These
 false matches must he examined and their number reduced to make efficient use
 of the Retrieval Program Report, either to obtain copies of the
 death certificates from the States, or to directly link the records to other
 data sets.

 The Retrieval Report is sorted so that the "first-listed" record for each
 person in the NDI death record that was determined by the NDI Retrieval
 Program to be the "best" of the possible matches, whenever there was more
 than one possible match in the NDI file.

 Results of the Match

 The match between the 16,148 persons in the SOA and the NDI for years 1982-
 1985 resulted in 12,301 possible matches. Of these possible matches, 4,745
 were to the 5,151 persons in the Longitudinal Study of Aging (LSOA)
 population. The procedure described below was used to reduce the
 number of possible matches to a set more closely representative of actual
 deaths in the SOA population, while eliminating as many of the false matches
 as possible.

 First, the 12,301 possible matches were reduced to 5,106(2,057 in the LS0A)
 by eliminating those with a data of death prior to the SOA interview.

 Then the 5,106 possible matches were reviewed by hand to determine the "best"
 single possible match for each person. Sixty-six of the "best" records
 were not the "first-listed" of the possible matches from the NDI matching
 process.  This review resulted in 3,151 possible matches, one
 for each person with a possible match.

 Scoring Algorithm

 These 3,151 records were given a mathematical score by a computer algorithm,
 sorted into groups, and examined by hand to determine which appeared to be
 accurate matches, and which did not.

 The scoring algorithm for the possible NDI matches, a modified form of one
 developed by Westat, Inc., scored the following items:

                                     MAXIMUM
                                    POSSIBLE
                  ITEM                 SCORE

 Social Securiry Number                    7

 Date of Birth                             4

 Sex                                       4

 Race                                      2

 Marital Status                            2

 State of Residence                        2

 State of Birth                            2

 State of Residence with State of Death    4

 First Name                                4

 Last Name                                 4

 Middle Initial                            2

 Father's Surname, if the sex was female   2

 The Maximum score was 37; the minimum score was 4.

 Recording Procedure

 Examination of the scores led to the following conclusions and code
 categories:

   1)   Scores greater than or equal to 28 indicated matches with no obvious
        reasons for rejecting them. These were coded as god matches. Included
        were all of the matches designated as exact in the NDI report.

   2)   Scores of 22, and scores of 24 through 27 indicated likely matches.
        They matched on fewer items than the good matches and were
        coded as fair matches.

   3)   Scores of less than 22 matched on only a few items; they were coded as
        poor matches.

   4)   Scores of 23 also matched on only a few items; however, the SSN was
        an exact match. These were also coded as poor matches.

   5)   A fourth Category was created for those 5SO records which did not
        match any record in the NDI.

 The table below shows the count of persons in the 50A and L5OA in each of
 these categories.

 Reinterview Results and Best Estimation

 1986 Reinterview Results

 Because the LSOA actually recontracted the SOA respondents, it was possible,
 for the LSOA sample, to examine probable errors in matching. Of the 5,151
 persons included in the LSOA sample, 4,113 completed an interview, 604
 were reported deceased, 45 were not interviewed for reasons that imply that
 they were alive at the time of the attempted interview (for example, in a
 nursing home, temporarily absent, or too ill to be interviewed).The remaining
 389 were not located, and were, therefore, indeterminate as to
 their status at the time of the attempted interview.

 Using the reinterview information when it was available, and the NDI code in
 other cases, a "best-estimate" of the status of each person was determined.

 Possible Errors

 There are 11 fair matches with the NDI which indicate that the person in the
 LSOA is deceased. However, those persons were alive at the time of the
 LSOA interview, as shown in the table above. These are probable erroneous
 matches that are readily detectable.

 The 46 poor matches reported as deceased at the time of the interview and the
 169 persons reported as deceased at the time of the interview, who did
 not match with the NDI at all may be errors, but they may also be persons who
 died in 1986, alter the latest date of death in avallable NDI records.

 CONCLUDING THE INTERVIEW:
       Since we are obtaining information on the health of
       selected people we spoke to in 1984 and any changes

       to find out what other changes may occur.

 55   These are all the questions I have at this time.

     Because of the importance of the cost of medical care for older
     people in the United States, we have more questions about your
     income and finances.  But, I will not ask them today because I
     don't want to take more of your time now.

     Instead, I am going to mail a questionnaire for you to complete;
     that way you can take time to think about the answers or look up
     information to answer the questions.

     You should receive your questionnaire within the next two weeks.

     Thank you very much for the help you have given.
