Technical and Programming Information

            This documentation describes the contents of NMES Tape 28R,
        which contains data from the NMES-2 Institutional Population
        Component (IPC).

             The data files provided on this tape are NMES research
        files.  These data are intended for sophisticated users who are
        familiar with the NMES public use tapes and have experience
        analyzing complex survey data.  The files on this tape have not
        been subjected to the same level of editing and quality control
        as standard NMES public use tapes.  Therefore, the data from
        these files should be analyzed and interpreted with care.

             Tape 28R contains three data files.  These data were
        primarily collected in the Institutional Use and Expenditure
        Questionnaire (IUEQ), which is included as a hard-copy only
        attachment to this document, and contains Medicaid provider data.
        The IUEQ was administered as part of the NMES IPC.  The IUEQ was
        administered during each round of the IPC to each IPC eligible
        facility in which sample persons had one or more stays.  Some
        sample persons had more than one IUEQ administered during a
        particular round if they were resident in more than one IPC
        eligible facility.  In such cases, each facility in which the
        sample person was residing was supposed to have completed a IUEQ
        for each of rounds 2, 3, and 4.

             Several previously released NMES public use and research
        tapes have included data from the IUEQ.  Data from Sections E and
        F of the IUEQ, containing information on health insurance
        coverage as well as charges and sources of payment, were released
        on NMES Tape 17 (for persons sampled in nursing and personal care
        homes (NH)) and Tape 22R (for persons sampled in facilities for
        persons with mental retardation (MR)).  The data on the current
        tape, 28R, are unedited and have not been reconciled with any of
        these files containing data from the IUEQ.

             Tape 28R includes unedited data from Section C of the IUEQ,
        which was designed to be asked of a respondent consulting the
        sample person's medical record.  In addition to asking about
        visits to emergency rooms and outpatient departments, this
        Section of the questionnaire also asked about the frequency of
        treatment by various types of medical providers, including
        physicians, dentists, mental health, physical and other types of
        therapists, and services by private duty nurses or attendants.
        For these providers the questionnaire also asked where the care
        was provided, if the provider was paid by the facility, and if
        paid, whether the payment was through salary, contract or other
        arrangement.

                For additional details on the IPC questionnaires and data
        collection methods, see Methods 1 ("National Medical Expenditure
        Survey - Questionnaires and Data Collection Methods for the
        Institutional Population Component - Methods 1"), which has been
        released previously with all NMES IPC public use tapes and is
        available from AHCPR.

             The following documentation is limited to a brief
        description of the structure of the three data files contained on
        Tape 28R and programming information.  For details on the editing
        of previously released variables, users should consult the
        documentation for the prior released tape, as indicated below.
        Also provided as documentation to this tape are several hard-copy
        Attachments.  Attachment 1 contains a copy of Section C of the
        IUEQ.  Attachment 2 contains a listing of NMES IPC data items.
        Attachment 3 contains ordering information for the NMES tapes.

             The records on the Tape 28R data files can be linked to all
        other public use data sets from the IPC by using the sample
        person identifier (SPERIDX) or the facility identifiers (e.g.,
        OFIDX).  Additional information on linkage of specific files with
        the Tape 28R files is provided in Section 2.0.

             The data on this tape are being released as EBCDIC files
        only.  The tape also includes an EBCDIC file containing the
        programming statements required to create SAS data sets and a
        format library corresponding to the Tape 28R data files.


        1.0   Data File Contents

             Contents of the three data files are described below.


        1.1  File 1:  Summary Data File

             File 1 is a person-level file which contains one record for
        each of 10,147 persons.  These include all responding persons
        sampled as current residents (resident on January 1, 1987), and
        all persons sampled as an admission for whom use and expenditure
        data were provided for at least a third of their period of 1987
        institutionalization in an IPC eligible facility.  There is one
        record per sample person, with the unique record identifier
        consisting of the IPC person identifier SPERIDX.  This population
        was previously released on NMES Tape 8, as well as Tape 17, File
        1 (NH population, only), Tape 22R, File 1 (MR population, only)
        and Tape 19R, File 1.

             File 1 contains variables pertaining to IPC survey
        administration, selected demographic characteristics, sampling
        weights and variance estimation variables. Also provided are the
        constructed variables FILE2SP and FILE3SP, which indicate the
        total number of records on Files 2 and 3 of Tape 28R,
        respectively, for that sample person (SPERIDX).  With the
        exception of these two variables, all other variables contained
        on File 1 have been released on previous NMES tapes, as
        previously stated; the documentation for these tapes should be
        consulted for additional information.  Consult Attachment 2 for a
        cross walk of the data items with the appropriate NMES tape of
        first release.


        1.2  File 2:  IUEQ Administration and Medical Provider Probes
             Data

             File 2 of Tape 28R contains unedited variables indicating
        the facility in which the medical provider data collection
        occurred (i.e., the responding facility), the start and end dates
        of the reference period, as well as probes for whether or not the
        sample person received services from each of 11 types of medical
        providers.  Detailed information on the actual services received
        from these providers is contained on File 3, as described below.
        File 2 also includes variables indicating the frequency of any
        private duty nursing or attendant care services received by the
        sample person, and whether the provider of that service was an
        employee or contractor of the facility, as well as frequency of
        emergency room and outpatient department visits by the sample
        person during the reference period.

             There is a total of 22,595 records on File 2 with one record
        per sample person, per round, per responding facility.  The
        unique record identifier is the variable IUEQIDX which is made up
        of:  OFIDX  PN  RN  IUEQFIDX, where IUEQFIDX is the identifier
        of the facility responding to the IUEQ.  Note that if a sample
        person was resident of more than one IPC-eligible facility during
        a round, each facility in which the sample person was residing
        was eligible to complete a IUEQ.

             File 2 can be linked to File 3 of Tape 28R by the variable
        IUEQIDX which is provided on both files.  The File 2 variable
        FILE3IU indicates the total number of records on File 3
        corresponding to that File 2 record.  Linkage of Files 2 and 3 is
        described further in Section 2.0.


        1.3  File 3:  Medical Provider Utilization Data

             File 3 of Tape 28R contains unedited variables from Section
        C of the IUEQ which describe utilization of the medical provider
        types corresponding to the probes reported on File 2.  The file
        contains a total of 48,439 records, and the unique record
        identifier is the variable IMEDIDX, which is made up of IUEQIDX
        (i.e., OFIDX  PN  RN  IUEQFIDX)  IMEDNX.  The variable IMEDNX
        is a sequential number assigned to each of the File 3 records
        within each unique value of IUEQIDX; IMEDNX ranges in value from
        1 to 10.

             The File 3 variables provide the following information about
        the medical providers seen by the sample person during the
        reference period:  the type of provider, the number of times the
        provider was seen in total and the number of times in the
        facility, the number of times the sample person was seen by a
        provider paid by the facility and whether that provider was an
        employee or contractor of the facility.

             File 3 can be linked to File 2 by using the variable
        IUEQIDX.  Note that while there may be more than one record on
        File 3 for each unique value of IUEQIDX there is just one record
        on File 2.  Additional issues related to linkage of Files 2 and 3
        are described in Section 2.0.


        1.4  Edits and Omissions

             All variables included on these files which are from Section
        C of the IUEQ are unedited variables.  Several variables from
        this section have been omitted from the Tape 28R data files,
        including some variables used by the interviewer to follow
        appropriate skip patterns.  For several cases, the verbatim
        response to an "other specify" question has been recoded to the
        appropriate NMES reserved code, (-8 don't know), in order to
        protect the confidentiality of SPs, respondents, or facilities.


        2.0  Linkage of Tape 28R Data Files


        2.1  File 1 Linkages

             File 1 can be linked to Files 2 and 3 of Tape 28R by using
        the variable SPERIDX, which is contained on all three files.  The
        File 1 variables FILE2SP and FILE3SP indicate the total number of
        records on Files 2 and 3 respectively, for the SPERIDX
        represented on File 1.  Note that 1,155 of the sample persons
        represented on File 1 have no records on either File 2 or File 3;
        261 of the sample persons represented on File 1 have a record(s)
        on File 2 but not on File 3.

             File 1 can be linked to all other person-level files on
        previously released tapes containing IPC data, using the variable
        SPERIDX.



        2.2  Linkage of File 2 with File 3

             Files 2 and 3 of Tape 28R can be linked using the variable
        IUEQIDX which is contained on both files and which is made up of
        the variables OFIDX  PN  RN  IUEQFIDX.  For each such
        combination of these variables, there is just one record on File
        2 but there may be zero, one or more than one record on File 3.
        The File 2 variable FILE3IU, indicates the total number of
        records on File 3 which link to that File 2 record (e.g., the
        total number of File 3 records for that unique value of IUEQIDX).
        FILE3IU ranges in value from 0 to 10.

             In linking these files, be aware all data are unedited; for
        example, the File 3 variable IQCCODE, indicating the type of
        medical provider, has not been reconciled with the File 2
        variables ISPSEE01-ISPSEE11, which are probe questions for each
        type of medical provider.  Also, there are 2,178 records on File
        2 for which there is no corresponding record on File 3 and thus
        have a value of zero for the File 2 variable FILE3IU.


        2.3  Linkage of File 2 with Stay-level Files on Tapes 17 and 22R

             Tapes 17 and 22R contain records corresponding to edited and
        imputed institutional stays, for persons sampled in
        nursing/personal care homes and facilities for persons with
        mental retardation, respectively.  On the stay-level files there
        is one record per institutional stay, containing edited and
        imputed variables describing the stay including the start and end
        date of the stay, the facility identifier, and characteristics of
        the facility.

             File 2 of Tape 28R can be linked to the stay-level files on
        Tapes 17 and 22R, in order to associate the medical provider
        utilization data contained on Tape 28R files with the
        corresponding stay.  (Tapes 17 and 22R also contain bill-level
        files which can be linked to the stay-level files to obtain
        expenditure and source of payment information for each
        institutional stay.  See the Tape 17/22R documentation.)  In
        theory, there should be one stay record on Tape 17/22R which is
        associated with each of the records on Tape 28R File 2, where the
        begin and end dates and facility identifier on the stay record
        match the begin and end dates and facility identifier on the Tape
        28R File 2 record.  However, because the Tape 28R files contain
        only unedited variables, users should be aware of the following
        with respect to the linkage of File 2 with the Tape 17/22R files:

             -    Many of the stay-level records on Tapes 17 and 22R
                  reflect a significant amount of editing and imputation,
                  particularly with respect to the begin and end date of
                  each stay.  By contrast, the begin and end reference
                  period dates on File 2 of Tape 28R (the variables
                  BBOX6DD/MM/YY and EBOX6MM/DD/YY) are unedited.  They
                  have not been reconciled for overlaps, duplicates or
                  missing values with respect to the reference periods on
                  other File 2 records for that person, nor for
                  consistency with the stay dates on the Tape 17/22R
                  files.  Thus, File 2 on Tape 17/22R should be used to
                  identify missing periods that are not represented on
                  File 2 of Tape 28R, but should be.

             -    The facility identifier on the Tape 28R File 2 records,
                  IUEQFIDX, is unedited. For example, there may be
                  facility identifiers on the Tape 17/22R records for
                  which there is no record on File 2 and vice versa.  The
                  former include those facilities on Tape 17/22R with a
                  facility identifier value of 999999, which indicate
                  that the facility characteristics and expenditure date
                  were not obtained from the facility, due to the fact
                  that the stay was imputed, or due to non-response from
                  a transfer facility (see Tape 17 documentation).  (It
                  should be noted that this missing expenditure data was
                  imputed.)

        Therefore, in order to link Tape 28R File 2 records with the
        stay-level records on Tapes 17/22R, users will have to identify
        and reconcile these potential inconsistencies in both the date
        and facility identifier variables.  In addition, these variables
        will require re-naming prior to merging the files.


        3.0       Variable Naming and Codebook Conventions

             Three codebooks are provided, one for each data file.  Each
        of these provide separate unweighted frequencies for each of the
        variables on the file, by the type of facility where the SP was
        sampled (NH or MR) and for the total.

             Each codebook provides complete listings of the variables
        contained on the file in alphabetical order by variable name and
        by file position for cross-reference.  In general, variable names
        reflect the content of the variable, with an 8-character
        limitation.  The variable descriptor describes the variable, with
        a 40-character limitation.  For variables corresponding to
        specific questionnaire items, the question number is included in
        the variable descriptor.  In such cases the first character in
        the descriptor refers to the questionnaire type, the second
        character refers to the section within the questionnaire, and the
        third character refers to the question number.  For example, a
        descriptor that begins with the characters IC6 indicates that the
        data were derived from the IUEQ, Section C, Question 6.

             A copy of Section C of the IUEQ is included as Attachment 1
        to the Tape 28R documentation to permit a full understanding of
        the content and wording of each item, the structure of
        questionnaire sections, skip patterns, and administrative
        information.

             Each codebook describes an EBCDIC data set and provides the
        following programming identifiers for each variable:


             IDENTIFIER               DESCRIPTION
            __________               ___________

             NAME                     Variable name (maximum of 8
                                      characters)

             DESCRIPTION              Variable descriptor (maximum of 40
                                      characters).

                                      CHAR).

             START                    Beginning column position of
                                      variable in the record.

                                      in the record.


        The following reserved code values are used:

        4.0       Sample Design and Response Rates

             The NMES-2 IPC sample was selected according to a stratified
        two-stage probability design, with facilities (nursing and
        personal care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded)
        selected in two stages.  The 1986 ILTCP served as the facility
        sampling frame.  The final stage of selection consisted of a
        sample of residents as of January 1, 1987 (i.e., current
        residents) and a sample of admissions between January 1, 1987,
        and December 31, 1987 (i.e., new admissions).  The sample was
        designed to yield unbiased national and regional estimates of
        health care parameters at the facility and resident levels.

             To improve the quality of the data and to facilitate
        sampling, information was collected over four rounds of
        interviewing.  January 1 residents were sampled in the first
        round and new admissions were sampled at each subsequent round.
        The design of the survey required that facility-reported IUEQ
        data for current residents were to be collected for their entire
        period(s) of institutionalization in 1987.  In contrast,
        facility-reported IUEQ data for new admissions began with their
        first admission to a sampled facility, independent of prior
        institutional stays in 1987.

             Of the sampled eligible population of nursing or personal
        care homes, 95.2 percent responded and 89.1 percent allowed
        sampling for all rounds.  Of the sampled population of current
        residents and new admissions combined, 94.6 percent responded for
        at least one-third of their period of institutionalization in
        1987, for an overall response rate of 84.3 percent (89.1 percent
        facility-level sampling response x 94.6 percent SP response).

             Of the sampled eligible population of facilities for persons
        with mental retardation, 94.7 percent responded and 90.0 percent
        allowed sampling for all rounds.  Of the sampled population of
        current residents and new admissions combined, 94.2 percent
        responded for at least one-third of their period of
        institutionalization in 1987, for an overall SP response rate of
        84.8 percent (90.0 percent facility-level sampling response x
        94.2 percent SP response).

        5.0       Estimation and Sampling Weights

        5.1       Sampling Weights

             In order to produce valid national estimates from the NMES
        public use files, the value in each record contributing to the
        estimate must be multiplied by the appropriate sampling weight on
        the record.  The sampling weight WIUEQEXP provided on File 1 of
        this tape is the estimation weight for national estimates of 1987
        nursing and personal care home use and expenditures for current
        residents, 1987 admissions, and both groups combined, and is
        summarized in Table 1 below.

             WIUEQEXP reflects adjustments for complete nonresponse and
        interviewing round nonresponse for facilities and for residents
        with respect to the nursing home expenditure data (e.g., data on
        File 3 of NMES Tape 17 or 22R).  WIUEQEXP also adjusts for dual
        probabilities of selection, duplication in the sampling frame,
        and poststratification adjustments to the 1986 ILTCP, which
        served as the frame for the survey.  WIUEQEXP DOES NOT ADJUST FOR
        ROUND NONRESPONSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MEDICAL PROVIDER DATA
        PROVIDED ON TAPE 28R.

        5.2       Strategies for Estimation

             The estimation issues associated with the NMES institutional
        data are complex.  Prior to using the data on the current tape,
        users new to the NMES IPC should familiarize themselves with the
        estimation materials provided on NMES Tape 17 (Section 4.0 of the
        Tape 17 documentation) as well as the information provided in the
        following sections.

             The data on the current tape have not been edited or imputed
        for round nonresponse.  For example, some persons may only have
        data for 2 rounds of data collection, but were in a nursing home
        for 4 rounds of data collection and have a positive sampling
        weight.  The missing 2 rounds of data should be imputed prior to
        using these data.  The sampling weight provided on this tape does
        not adjust for the round nonresponse associated with the medical
        provider data on this tape; it does adjust for round nonresponse
        associated with data on Files 2 and 3 on Tape 17 (for persons
        sampled in nursing and personal care homes) and Files 2 and 3 on
        Tape 22R (for persons sampled in facilities for persons with
        mental retardation).

             It should be noted that it is not possible, with these data,
        to make estimates for persons who were admitted to facilities for
        persons with mental retardation (due to sample size constraints).
        Persons sampled as admissions can only be combined with persons
        sampled as current residents to estimate the universe of persons
        who spent any time in 1987 in a facility for persons with mental
        retardation, or a subset of that population (e.g., all under the
        age of 65).


        5.3       Sampling Weights for Merging Data from Multiple Files

             When merging files on this tape, it is important to
        recognize that the population represented on File 1 of Tape 28R s
        the union of the population represented on File 1 of Tape 17
        (persons sampled in nursing and personal care homes) and the
        population represented on File 1 of Tape 22R (persons sampled in
        facilities for persons with mental retardation).  On all of these
        files, persons with a positive value for WIUEQEXP are a subset of
        the total population.  This weight, WIUEQEXP, should be used for
        any estimation that involves variables either taken directly from
        the current file or from File 3 of Tape 17 or File 3 of Tape 22R.


        5.4       Variance Estimation

             Variance estimates of sample statistics require that the
        complex nature of the IPC survey design be taken into account for
        hypothesis testing and for the construction of confidence
        intervals.  To obtain variance estimates of sample statistics by
        means of statistical programs that use the Taylor series method
        of variance estimation, two additional variables must be used in
        conjunction with the appropriate sampling weight variable.  The
        weight variable WIUEQEXP is to be used in conjunction with
        STAIUEQ1, which indicates the respective pseudo stratum, and
        PSUIUEQ1, which denotes the PSU within a given pseudo stratum.
        These three variables are all included on File 1.

             Files 1-3 were created using the Statistical Analysis System
        (SAS, version 6.08) computer software and converted to EBCDIC
        format.  File 4 contains the technical documentation stored as an
        EBCDIC file with ASA carriage control characters in the first
        byte in each record (file format FB).  The carriage control
        characters provide information to a standard printer regarding
        line feeds and page ejects.  This file can be copied to an online
        storage device and viewed or printed using a standard text editor
        system such as WYLBUR.  File 5, an EBCDIC file containing the
        necessary SAS statements to create SAS system files, is provided
        for the convenience of SAS users.  In order to use File 5, the
        user should (1) have some experience with SAS, (2) identify
        potential constraints associated with their hardware or SAS
        version, and (3) be aware of the way File 5 is partitioned.
        Specifically, the INPUT, FORMAT, and LABEL statements for the
        three data files are followed by SAS statements to create a SAS
        format library (i.e, PROC FORMAT and VALUE statements) for use
        with the data files.

 This codebook provides unweighted frequencies  for  all  variables  on
 File  1 of NMES Research Tape 28R.  File 1 is a person-level file with
 a total of 10,147 records, with one record for  each  person  who  was
 sampled in the NMES Institutional Population Component (IPC) as either
 (1) a current resident (resident on January 1, 1987) or as (2)  a  new
 admission  (admitted  between  January 1 and December 31, 1987) in an
 IPC eligible facility and for  whom  use  and  expenditure  data  were
 provided  for  at least one-third of their period of eligibility in an
 IPC long-term-care institution (i.e., all  persons  released  on  NMES
 Tapes  8  and  19R; or alternatively, all persons on File 1 of Tape 17
 (persons sampled in nursing/personal care homes) and File  1  of  Tape
 22R   (persons   sampled   in   facilities  for  persons  with  mental
 retardation)).  File 1 of Tape 28R contains  variables  pertaining  to
 IPC   survey  administration,  selected  demographic  characteristics,
 sampling weight and variance estimation.  To obtain national estimates
 for  the variables on the Tape 28R files, the weight which is provided
 on this file, and  which  is  described  in  the  Tape  28R  technical
 documentation, must be used.  Information concerning sample design and
 estimation is also provided in the technical documentation.

 This codebook provides unweighted frequencies  for  all  variables  on
 File  2  of NMES Research Tape 28R.  File 2 contains a total of 22,595
 records, with one record per sample person, per round, per  responding
 facility.  The unique record identifier is the variable IUEQIDX, which
 is composed of the variables OFIDX  PN  RN    IUEQFIDX,  where  the
 latter  variable  is  the identifier of the facility responding to the
 IUEQ.  File 2 contains unedited variables from Section C of the  IUEQ,
 including:   the  start  and  end  dates  of the reference period, the
 identifier of the responding facility, and probes for whether  or  not
 the  sample  person  received  services  from  each of eleven types of
 medical providers.  File 2 can be linked to File 3 of Tape 28R,  which
 contains  detailed  information  on  the  medical provider utilization
 reported in Section C,  using  the  variable  IUEQIDX  which  is  also
 contained  on File 3.  The File 2 variable FILE3IU indicates the total
 number of records on File 3 for that File 2 record.  File  2  of  Tape
 28R  can  be  linked  to  the stay-level information on File 2 of Tape
 17/22R, but users should be aware of the following:  1) the  reference
 period  dates  on  File  2  of  Tape  28R are unedited and may require
 editing prior to linkage to the stay-level records on File 2 of  Tapes
 17/22R,  many  of  which  reflect  editing  or  imputation; and 2) the
 facility identifier on File 2 of Tape 28R is unedited  so  that  there
 may be facility identifiers on the Tape 17/22R records for which there
 is no record on File 2 of Tape 28R and vice versa.  To obtain national
 estimates for the variables on the Tape 28R files, the weight which is
 provided on File 1 and which is described in the  Tape  28R  technical
 documentation must be used; however it should be noted that the weight
 provided does not adjust for round non-response associated with  these
 data.  Users must first develop an estimation strategy prior to making
 estimates with these data to adjust for the non-response.   Additional
 information  concerning  sample design and estimation is also provided
 in the technical documentation.

 This codebook provides unweighted frequencies  for  all  variables  on
 File  3  of NMES Research Tape 28R.  File 3 contains a total of 48,439
 records and the unique record  identifier  is  the  variable  IMEDIDX,
 which  is  made  up  of the variables IUEQIDX (i.e, the File 2 record
 identifier)  IMEDNX, where the latter variable is a sequential number
 assigned  to  each  File 3 record within each unique value of IUEQIDX.
 File 3 contains unedited variables from Section C of  the  IUEQ  which
 describe  utilization  of  the medical provider types corresponding to
 the provider probes reported on File 2 (e.g., number of visits).  File
 3  variables  provide  the  following  information  about  the medical
 providers seen by the sample person during the reference period:   the
 type  of  provider,  the number of times the provider was seen and the
 payment arrangement.  To obtain national estimates for  the  variables
 on  the  Tape  28R  files,  the weight which is provided on File 1 and
 which is described in the Tape 28R  technical  documentation  must  be
 used;  however,  it  should be noted that the weight provided does not
 adjust for round non-response associated with these data.  Users  must
 first  develop  an  estimation strategy prior to making estimates with
 these data to adjust for  the  non-response.   Additional  information
 concerning  sample  design  and  estimation  is  also  provided in the
 technical documentation.
