ABSTRACT

       1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey: Public Use Tape 5
   Institutional Population Component, Facility Questionnaire Supplement
         Nursing and Personal Care Homes and Facilities for the
                          Mentally Retarded

      This documentation describes one in a series of public use
 tapes from the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES),
 which provides a new and extensive set of data on the use of health
 services and on health care expenditures in the United States.

      NMES continues a series of national health care expenditure
 surveys, most recently the 1980 National Medical Care Utilization
 and Expenditures Survey (NMCUES) and the 1977 National Medical Care
 Expenditures Survey (NMCES).  Like the earlier surveys, NMES used
 a national probability sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized
 population in a household survey.  In view of the increasing volume
 and cost of long-term and institutional care, NMES included as well
 the population resident in or admitted to nursing homes and
 facilities for the mentally retarded over the course of the survey
 year.  To provide more focused estimates of the provision of long-
 term care rendered in the community, the household survey
 oversampled population segments known to be at risk of needing or
 using services for chronic impairments or long-term illness, in
 particular the elderly and the functionally impaired.  Because of
 continuing policy concern with populations with restricted access
 to the health care delivery system, poor and low-income families
 and the black and Hispanic minorities were oversampled as well.  In
 addition, the American Indian and Alaska Native population living
 on or near reservations and eligible for the  Indian Health Service
 was included in NMES on the basis of a separate household sample.

      Together, the major components of the National Medical
 Expenditure Survey provide national estimates of health status and
 estimates of insurance coverage and the use of services,
 expenditures, and sources of payment for the period from January 1
 to December 31, 1987.  The reports of health care expenditures and
 insurance coverage obtained in the household surveys are
 supplemented by additional surveys; most important among these are
 the Health Insurance Plan Survey of employers and insurers of
 consenting household survey respondents, and the Medical Provider
 Survey of physicians, osteopaths, and inpatient and outpatient
 facilities, including home health care agencies, which were
 reported as providing services to any member of the
 noninstitutionalized population sample.  A Medicare Records
 component is used to provide a record check on 1987 eligibility
 status and claims information of all Medicare beneficiaries,
 including those in the institutional population.

      The survey of persons who were resident in or admitted to
 long-term care facilities (nursing and personal care homes and
 facilities for the mentally retarded) at any time in 1987 provides
 data on their health care use and expenditures for the entire
 survey year, both within the institution and in the community.
 This information, as well as extensive data on health and
 functional status, demographic characteristics, and living
 arrangements and insurance coverage at the time of admission, was
 obtained from two primary sources.  The surveys in institutions
 (SII) collected data from facility administrators and designated
 staff; they were complemented by surveys of next-of-kin (SNK) or
 other knowledgeable persons in the community to obtain additional
 personal history and information on insurance coverage and health
 services use and expenditures both within and outside the
 institution.

      Taken in conjunction, these surveys will yield comprehensive,
 population-based estimates that permit separate analyses of most
 groups of policy interest, including those presently outside of the
 scope of the various public and private financing mechanisms.

      The NMES panel design included several rounds of household
 interviews and followed institutional residents over a full
 calendar year to assess the effects of changes in health status,
 income, employment, and eligibility for public and private
 insurance coverage on both the use of services and on public and
 private expenditures for care.

      The 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey was sponsored by
 the National Center for Health Services Research and Health Care
 Technology Assessment, now the Agency for Health Care Policy and
 Research.  The Indian Health Service cosponsored the Survey of
 American Indians and Alaska Natives.  The Health Care Financing
 Administration provided consultation and technical assistance
 during the development of the survey instruments.  The data were
 collected and are being edited and published in accordance with the
 confidentiality provisions of the Public Health Service Act and the
 Privacy Act.  A series of further public use tapes is in
 preparation to ensure timely access to these data by the research
 and policy community.

      Field work for the institutional population component and the
 household survey was conducted by Westat, Inc., Rockville,
 Maryland, as the primary contractor and by NORC, University of
 Chicago.  Field work for the Survey of American Indians and Alaska
 Natives was conducted by the Council of Energy Resource Tribes and
 Stephen R. Brand Associates under subcontract to Westat.  Data
 processing for the public use files is being provided by Social and
 Scientific Systems, Inc., Bethesda, Maryland.


TECHNICAL AND PROGRAMMING INFORMATION

 General Information

      This documentation describes one in a series of public use
 tapes from the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES). The
 tape contains data collected with a facility questionnaire supple-
 ment (FQS) in phase 3 of the NMES Institutional Population Compo-
 nent (IPC).  Released as SAS and EBCDIC data sets, this public use
 tape provides additional information on a nationally representative
 sample of nursing and personal care homes and facilities for the
 mentally retarded. The data are being released prior to final data
 cleaning and editing in order to provide prompt access to NMES by
 the research and policy community.  Further data from the IPC and
 from other NMES components will be released on the same basis.  For
 a listing of previously released public use tapes from NMES, see
 Attachment 3.

      The following documentation offers a brief overview of the
 type and level of data provided, the content and structure of the
 files, and the codebooks, and programming information.  It contains
 the following sections:

      Data File Contents and Codebook Structure
      Omissions, Edits and Imputations
      Variable Naming and Coding Conventions
      Sampling Weights and Variance Estimation
      Programming Information
      Data Dictionary
                Alphabetical and Position Listing of Variables
                Codebook
                Codebook Notes

      More detailed information on NMES data elements and data
 collection procedures in the IPC and on FQS response rates, weights
 and variance estimation programs is offered in Attachments 1 and 2,
 which are provided as hard-copy attachments to the data tape.
 Attachment 1 also contains the instrument used to collect the
 information in this data file.

      A previous NMES public use file contains data for the
 facilities responding to the facility questionnaire in phase 1.  A
 revised version of the weight variable for these facility data is
 currently being released as an update file.  All facility level
 public use data sets can be linked using the facility
 identification number variable (OFIDX).

 Data File Contents and Structure

      This public use data set contains  a data file with one record
 for each sampled nursing home and facility for the mentally
 retarded responding to the facility questionnaire supplement (FQS)
 administered during phase 3 (early 1988) of the Survey in
 Institutions.  Initial facility questionnaires were administered at
 all primary sampled facilities during phase 1 (early 1987) and
 collected facility data such as certification status, services
 provided, size, and staff characteristics.  They also were used to
 determine eligibility of the facility for the IPC.  The facility
 questionnaire supplement was administered to all primary sampled
 facilities which participated in phase 3 of the IPC in order to
 supplement these facility data.  It included questions on special
 Alzheimer's units in nursing homes, including the capacity of
 current units and plans for future expansion.  The FQS also
 included some questions for nursing homes which had been asked
 previously only of facilities for the mentally retarded.

      The codebook provided for this data file contains the
 following information:

      Unique facility identifier

      Survey administration variables

      Sequential variables based on the facility questionnaire
      supplement in the order in which the items appear in the
      questionnaire

      Weight and variance estimation variables.

 Most variable labels are abbreviated versions of the questionnaire
 items and include the question number or location in the instrument
 (e.g., front cover).  A complete variable listing in alphabetical
 order and by codebook position is provided for cross-reference.  A
 copy of the facility questionnaire supplement is included in
 Attachment 1 (Exhibit 34) to this public use tape to permit a full
 understanding of the content and wording of each item, the
 structure of questionnaire sections, skip patterns and
 administrative information.

 Omissions, Edits and Imputations

      The data file contains the majority of data collected in the
 facility questionnaire supplement.  A few variables were excluded
 to protect the confidentiality of facility data. For these an
 explanatory note is provided at the end of the codebook. Box items
 for use by the interviewer in following skip patterns, interview
 times, interviewer and respondent names, and similar items were
 likewise omitted.

      Data edits were largely restricted to correcting deviations
 from skip patterns and recoding text fields to preserve
 confidentially.  More extensive editing was done for the set of
 variables corresponding to questions related to current or planned
 Alzheimer's Disease programs or units (questions 10-19).  This
 included reconciliation of inconsistent responses for related
 items, editing of outlier values, and the use of weighted
 sequential hot decking for imputation of missing values (V.G.
 Iannachione. 1982. Proceedings, Seventh Annual SAS Users
 International Conference:759).  For all variables with extensive
 edits including imputations, both the edited and unedited versions
 are provided.

 Variable Naming and Coding Conventions

      The codebook contains variable information and frequency
 distributions for a total of 1,391 facility records, comprising 759
 nursing homes and 632 facilities for the mentally retarded.  For
 each variable, separate unweighted frequencies are provided for
 each of the two types of records and for the combined group of
 1,391 facility records.

      The codebook describes a SAS data set and provides the
 following programming identifiers for each variable:

                          least one missing value (i.e., -7, -8, or
                          -9).

 Sample Design, Sampling Weights and Variance Estimation

      The IPC sample was selected according to a stratified three-
 stage probability design, with facility selection in the first two
 stages.  The 1986 Inventory of Long-Term Care Places  served as the
 facility sampling frame.  The final stage of selection consisted of
 a sample of residents as of January 1, 1987, and a sample of
 admissions between January 1 and December 31, 1987.  The sample was
 designed to yield unbiased national and regional estimates of
 health care parameters at the facility and resident level.  At both
 levels, the information is classified as to the type of
 institution; that is, nursing and personal care homes and
 facilities for the mentally retarded (Cohen, S.B., P. Flyer and
 D.E.B. Potter. 1987. Sample Design of the National Medical
 Expenditure Survey, Institutional Population Component; available
 from AHCPR).

      The sampling weights developed for the IPC facility data
 reflect the different probabilities of being selected into the IPC
 sample.  These result from the complex multi-stage sample design of
 the survey.  The facility weights were also adjusted for facility
 level nonresponse to the phase 1 facility questionnaires and
 further poststratified using data from the Inventory of Long-Term
 Care Places on the following facility-level measures:  facility
 type, cost strata, region, certification, status, ownership and bed
 size.  Additional adjustments were made for nonresponse to the
 phase 3 facility questionnaire supplement and to adjust for
 duplication in the sampling frame.  More detailed information can
 be found in a preliminary  report on the IPC sample design (Flyer,
 P. 1990.  Preliminary Report:  Sample Design for the Institutional
 Population Component; available from AHCPR).

      Accurate estimates at the facility level for the U.S.
 population of nursing and personal care homes and facilities for
 the mentally retarded require the use of weighted data.  To
 facilitate the derivation of national population estimates for IPC
 data, a facility questionnaire supplement weight, WFQS,  is
 provided.  Unweighted counts for applicable variables in the IPC
 facility questionnaire supplement are provided in the codebook for
 an evaluation of the number of cases in the various categories.
 Weighted and unweighted counts and distributions for selected
 variables are provided as Attachment 2.B to this public use tape.

      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.  Data from complex survey designs require special
 consideration with respect to variance estimation and analysis, due
 to the departure from simple random sampling assumptions.

      Several variance estimation techniques are currently available
 that will approximate the sampling variance for statistics derived
 from the NMES Institutional Population Component.  Three generally
 accepted and frequently used techniques for obtaining variance
 estimates for sample statistics from complex surveys are the Taylor
 Series linearization method, Balanced Repeated Replication, and the
 Jackknife Method (Cox, B.G., and S.B. Cohen.  1985.  Methodological
 Issues for Health Care Surveys.  Marcel Dekker, Inc.).  Due to user
 facility and computational efficiency, the Taylor series
 linearization method of variance estimation is recommended for use
 with IPC data.  The technique is compatible with a multi-stage,
 stratified sampling design with at least two primary sampling units
 drawn from each stratum.  The requirement of paired sampling units
 was not initially satisfied by the IPC sample design, due to a
 number of certainty selections of large, IPC-eligible institutions.
 To allow for variance computations, these primary sampling units
 were paired as members of pseudo strata, linking facilities with
 similar characteristics based on the facility measures used for
 stratification in the IPC sample design (facility type, cost
 strata, region, certification status, ownership, bed-size, state,
 and zip code).  This strategy will generally result in conservative
 estimates of the sampling variance.

      To obtain variance estimates of sample statistics by means of
 standard statistical package programs, two additional variables
 must be used in concert with the appropriate sampling weight:
 STRATFQS, which indicates the respective pseudo stratum, and
 PSUFQS, which denotes the primary sampling unit within a given
 pseudo stratum.

      Appendix 2C contains a listing of several well-known variance
 estimation programs that are appropriate for use with complex data.

 FAIDPRC           To protect the identity of the facilities, a
                   continuous variable was created indicating the
                   percent of residents where Medicaid was a payer
                   for facility charges.  Facilities with an unknown
                   value for number of total residents or number of
                   Medicaid residents have  a value of -999.   All
                   source data used to construct this percentage are
                   as reported in the FQS. FAIDPRC was not reconciled
                   to other IPC public use data.

 FCAREPRC          To protect the identity of the facilities, a
                   continuous variable was created indicating the
                   percentage of residents where Medicare was a payer
                   for facility charges.  Facilities with an unknown
                   value for number of total residents or number of
                   Medicare residents have a value of -999.  All
                   source data used to construct this percentage are
                   as reported in the FQS. FCAREPRC was not
                   reconciled to other IPC public use data.

 FRETPRC           To protect the identity of the facilities, a
                   continuous variable was created indicating the
                   percent of mentally retarded residents in the
                   facility.  Facilities with an unknown value for
                   number of total residents or number of mentally
                   retarded residents have a value of -999.  All

                   to other IPC NMES data items.

 FSACOTH           The "other, specify" text field was excluded from
                   this public use file because of the large amount
                   of confidential (state specific) data in the
                   field.

 FSADEMXX          These variables were edited and missing values
 FSADEVX           were imputed.
 FSADEVYX
 FSAMAXX
 FSANOREX
 FSAONLYX
 FSARESX
 FSATSPEX
 FSAUNITX

 FSADEVYY          To protect the identity of the facilities, the
                   month of expansion was excluded from this public
                   use file.

 FSASTAFF          These variables must be used together to obtain
 FSAFTE2           total staff counts.

 FSATOS            To protect the identity of facilities, the "other,
                   specify" text field was recorded to -9 for two
                   facilities.

 FSRCAT            Data were originally collected as a text field.
                   The text field was then recorded into a
                   categorical variable as follows:

                    0    Other, not specified
                    1    Facility Director/Administrator
                    2    Quality assurance/EEOC compliance co-
                         ordinator
                    3    Regional Administrator/Director
                    4    Assistant Director/Administrator
                    5    Administrative Assistant
                    6    Owner
                    7    Bookkeeper
                    8    Financial Business Officer
                    9    Officer or Director from the Admissions,
                         Discharge or Patient Records Department
                   50    Other care provider
                   51    Unit Directors/House Manager
                   52    Case Managers/Case Worker/Social Worker
                   53    Program Specialist/Director
                   54    Foster parent
                   55    Director of Nurses
                   56    Registered Nurse
                   57    Licensed Practical Nurse
                   58    Assistant Unit Director/House Manager
                   59    Director of Patient Services

                   Codes 0-9 are for titles that indicate
                   administration or operation.
                   Codes 50 - 59 are for titles that indicate patient
                   level or caretaker positions.

 NEWFTYPE          Facility type (i.e., nursing and personal care
                   homes or facilities for the mentally retarded) as
                   determined during the phase 1 field period by
                   means of the facility questionnaire.

 PRESCHE           To protect the identity of facilities, a
                   continuous variable was constructed indicating the
                   percent change from the number of residents
                   reported in the phase 1 facility questionnaire to
                   the number reported in the phase 3 facility
                   questionnaire supplement.  Facilities with an

                   unknown value for total number of residents at the
                   time of FQS administration have a value of -999.


 PSUFQS            These variables must be used to obtain variance
 SRATFQS           estimates of sample statistics by means of
                   standard statistical programs using the Taylor
                   series linearization method.  They denote the
                   strata and the primary sampling unit (PSU) within
                   given strata.  For details on sampling weights and
                   variance estimation, see the Technical and
                   Programming section on this file, and the hard
                   copy documentation, Attachment 2.

 WFQS              The facility level weight adjusted for
                   nonresponse.  Unbiased estimates at the facility
                   level for the U.S. population of nursing and
                   personal care homes and facilities for the
                   mentally retarded require the use of weighted
                   data.   For details on sampling weights and
                   variance estimation see the Technical and
                   Programming section on this file, and the hard
                   copy documentation, Attachment 2.
