 Data Purchase and Use Agreement

 The Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242m(d) provides that
 the data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics
 (NCHS) may be used only for the purpose for which they were
 obtained; any effort to determine the identity of any reported
 cases, or to use the information for any purpose other than for
 health statistical reporting and analysis, would be against the
 law.  NCHS does all it can to assure that the identity of data
 subjects cannot be disclosed through public-use data sets; all
 direct identifiers, as well as any characteristics that might
 lead to identification, are omitted from the data set.
 Nevertheless, it may be possible in rare instances, through
 complex analysis and with outside information on sample cases, to
 ascertain from the data set the identity of particular persons or
 establishments.  Considerable harm could ensue if this were done.
 Therefore, the undersigned gives the following assurances with
 respect to all NCHS public-use data sets:

 The user:

 will not use the data in these sets in any way except for
 statistical reporting and analysis;

 will not release the data sets or any part of them to any
 person who is not a member of this organization, except with the
 approval of NCHS;

 will not attempt to use them to learn the identity of any person
 or establishment included in any set; and

 If the identity of any person or establishment should be
 discovered inadvertently, then (a) no use will be made of this
 knowledge, (b) the Director of NCHS will be advised of the
 incident, (c) the information that would identify an individual
 or establishment will be safeguarded or destroyed, as requested
 by NCHS, and (d) no one else will be informed of the discovered
 identity.

 Description

 The National Nursing Home Survey Followup (NNHSF) is a
 longitudinal study which follows the cohort of current residents
 and discharged residents sampled in the 1985 National Nursing
 Home Survey (NNHS) (1-8).  The study is a collaborative project
 between the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers
 for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institute on Aging
 (NIA).  The NNHSF builds on the data collected in the 1985 NNHS
 by providing longitudinal information on nursing home and
 hospital utilization.  Wave I was conducted from August through
 December 1987.

 The 1985 NNHS collected a variety of information about long-term
 care facilities and their residents.  Data were collected on a
 sample of patients who were current residents at the time of
 contact with the facility as well as a sample of discharges that
 occurred 12 months prior to the facility contact.  There were
 5,243 current residents and 6,023 discharges.  For the current
 residents, detailed information was collected regarding
 dependence in activities of daily living, functional impairments,
 diagnoses, the receipt of services, cognitive and emotional
 status, charges, source of payments, and a number of other topics
 of considerable prognostic significance.  For the discharged
 residents, detailed information was obtained regarding diagnoses
 and services, nursing home and hospital use prior to the sampled
 nursing home stay, hospitalizations during the sample stay, and
 nursing home readmissions subsequent to the sample stay.

 To supplement the current and discharged resident components, the
 1985 NNHS included a Next-of-Kin (NOK) component.  The NOK
 interview, using a Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing
 (CATS) system, was designed to collect information about current
 and former nursing home residents that is not generally available
 from patient records or other sources in the nursing home.
 Information on the resident's characteristics prior to admission
 and history of prior nursing home utilization was collected.  The
 Next-of-Kin questionnaire was administered to a family member,
 the former resident, an institutional representative, or another
 knowledgeable person who could answer questions about the
 resident.  All residents for whom a Current Resident
 Questionnaire (CRQ) or a Discharged Resident Questionnaire (DRQ)
 had been completed during the field data collection portion of
 the NNHS were eligible for the NOK component.  The National
 Nursing Home Survey Followup obtains additional information on a
 portion of the residents for whom a CRQ or a DRQ was completed.

 The followup cohort is comprised of two types of cases.  All
 cases with a completed NOK interview who were not known to be
 deceased as of the NOK are included.  Cases that were either not
 fielded in the NOK or which did not result in a completed
 interview were also included if the subject had been a resident
 of a nursing home at the NNHS field interview.  Of the 6,607
 subjects who were identified as eligible for Wave I, 6,054 are in
 the first group and 553 are in the second.  Wave I interviews
 were completed for 6,001 subjects At the time of contact, 1,998
 subjects were found to be deceased.

 The preferred respondent at followup was someone who knew about
 the subject's experiences since the last contact.  Facility
 respondents were used if the subject was a nursing home resident
 at the last contact and community based respondents were used if
 the subject had been discharged into the community.  In order to
 maximize the amount of information collected, more than one
 respondent could be contacted.  For example, if a community based
 respondent was contacted and in the course of the interview it
 was learned that the subject had been readmitted to a facility,
 that facility was then contacted, if necessary, to obtain
 information on utilization since that admission as well as
 information on current status.  Conversely, if a facility was
 contacted initially and in the course of the interview it was
 learned that the subject had been discharged, a new respondent
 was contacted (either a relative, or the subject depending on the
 type of discharge) to provide information on the subject's
 current status.

 The Wave I interviews were conducted using a CATI system.  With
 CATI, data collection and data entry are concurrent and computer-
 controlled.  The CATI questionnaire used for Wave I was a
 modified version of the questionnaire developed for the Next-of-
 Kin Component of the 1985 NNHS.  CATI was programmed by utilizing
 applicable parts of the NOK questionnaire unless otherwise
 specified on the questionnaire, the same set of questions was
 asked irrespective of whether the respondent was a subject, next-
 of-kin, or a facility official.  Information was collected on
 vital status, nursing home and hospital utilization since the
 last contact, current living arrangements, Medicare number, and
 source of payment.

 Approximately 1-2 weeks before the start of the data collection
 period, advance letters were mailed to respondents.  A letter was
 mailed to each primary respondent for whom an address was
 available.  A special introductory paragraph which included the
 contents of the letter was added to the questionnaire for
 respondents for whom no address was available.  Upon contacting
 the appropriate respondent, the interviewer proceeded with the
 interview, if possible, or scheduled a time to call back.  A
 minimum of five attempts were made to contact each potential
 respondent for whom there appeared to be a workable telephone
 number.

 Many of the respondents were the facilities in which the
 residents were living at the time of the field interview.  To
 reduce the number of contacts with these facilities, the letter
 listed all the subjects about whom the facility would be asked.
 This eliminated the need for multiple letters to the same nursing
 home.  The CATI questionnaire was programmed to allow the
 interviewer to complete all cases within a sample nursing home on
 one call without having to reread the introduction.  If a sample
 nursing home refused to participate or could not be contacted,
 all cases that should have been completed by the facility were
 changed to "proxy" interviews.  In some cases the names of the
 proxies to be contacted were given by the facility; in most
 cases, however, interviewers had to use the names listed in the
 CATI respondent roster for the NOK questionnaire.

 If the designated respondent could not or would not participate,
 the interviewer attempted to obtain the name and telephone number
 of another potential respondent.  If the designated respondent
 could not be located, other contact names that were in the NOK
 CATI file were examined and attempts were made to locate and
 interview another individual.

 Estimation Procedures

 This micro-data tape is similar to the Next-of-Kin Component of
 the 1985 National Nursing Home Survey file in that it combines
 data on subsets of the original current resident and discharged
 resident samples.  However, the current resident and discharged
 resident samples were designed to be analyzed separately.  While
 it is possible to combine the samples in certain instances, the
 procedures for doing so are not discussed here.  Moreover, each
 record on the tape represents a person rather than an event.
 Thus, an individual can only have one record on the file.  The
 discharge resident sample is an event sample and an individual
 could have multiple records on the file or have records on both
 the discharged resident file and the current resident file.

 Decisions concerning the appropriate way to weight the data
 should take into account the objectives of the analysis, the
 design of the current resident and discharged resident samples,
 and non-response to the resident questionnaires and/or the NOK.
 Some analyses may require more complicated weighting strategies
 than are discussed here.  A statistician should be consulted in
 those instances.  The data tape contains the original weights for
 the current and discharged resident samples and the two sets of
 weights derived for the NOK file.  A discussion of these weights
 and a description of the NOK file is provided in the Public Use
 Data Tape Documentation of the Next-of-Kin Component of the 1985
 National Nursing Home Survey.  Weights have not been constructed
 which take into account non-response in the NNHSF.  However, non-
 response rates are low.  In addition, NOK weights are not
 available for subjects not successfully interviewed in the NOK
 which complicates weighting procedures even further.

 The weighting procedures used to analyze this data will depend on
 the objectives of the analysis.  For example, information on
 utilization history can be used to supplement the information
 available on the resident questionnaires and the NOK.  In this
 case, the data from the Wave I and NOK tapes would be matched to
 the CRQ/DRQ tapes and non-response to the NOK would be treated as
 missing data.  The weights provided on the CRQ and DRQ data tapes
 are included on the Wave I tape in columns 485-492 and 509-516,
 respectively.  These weights do not include adjustments for non-
 response to the NOK or to the Wave I interviews.

 Alternatively, the data available on the NOK may be central to
 the analysis and the investigator might want to use weights that
 take non-response to the NOK into account.  Non-response to the
 NOK questionnaire can result from failure to obtain sufficient
 information on the CRQ/DRQ to contact a "next-of-kin" or failure
 to obtain an interview given that name and phone number of a
 respondent was obtained.  Two weights for each sample case
 (current resident or discharged resident) are provided for this
 purpose.  One of these estimators weights the NOK data to the
 number of CRQ or DRQ cases with an identified "next-of-kin"
 respondent.  This estimator is the product of the baseweight for
 sample current or discharged residents, adjustments for the
 presence of "next-of-kin", and adjustments for non-response to
 the NOK questionnaire given a respondent was identified.  The
 second estimator weights the NOK data to the total number of DRQ
 (or CRQ) cases. This estimator assumes that persons without a
 "next-of-kin" have essentially the same characteristics as those
 for whom "next-of-kin" were listed.  This estimator is the
 product of the CRQ/DRQ baseweight and adjustments for non-
 response to the NOK questionnaire as indicated previously.  As
 noted earlier, the NOK weights do not include adjustments for
 non-response to the Wave I questionnaire.

 The use of the weights provided are complicated by the design
 features of the CRQ, DRQ, NOK and the NNHSF.  Recall that the DRQ
 is an event sample.  That is, events, rather than persons are
 sampled.  Thus, an individual can appear more than once on the
 sampling list.  While the CRQ is a sample of persons and not
 events, some current residents were also included in the
 discharge sample if they were discharged from the nursing home in
 the last l2 months.  The NOK component and the NNHSF, while using
 the basic CRQ and DRQ samples, follows persons.  This is a
 particular problem for the DRQ sample.  All information for
 persons sampled more than once is included on one record with the
 reference date for the utilization history questions (Question 24
 of the NOK) being the earliest sampled discharge date.  Thus,
 information on the characteristics of the person at the time of
 admission (Questions 2-19) is collected only for this first
 sampled stay.  If an investigator wants to make inferences about
 discharge "events" it is necessary to add cases to the file which
 duplicate the information for those persons who fall in the
 discharge sample more than once.  Information which identifies
 the ID numbers of each discharged resident's other sampled stays
 is found in positions 53-59, and 60-66 of the NOK.  When records
 are duplicated to add cases to represent all discharged resident
 stays, the ID numbers in positions 1-7 of the added records
 should be changed to match the ID numbers identified in positions
 53-59, and 60-66 of the original record.  For example, a resident
 has two stays on the discharge file and the first sampled
 discharge has an ID number of 1000001 (positions 1-7).  The ID
 number of the second stay (1000002), is stored in positions 53-
 59.  When the information is duplicated, the ID for the duplicate
 stay should be changed to 1000002.  In addition, stay information
 must be rearranged to identify the appropriate sampled stay and
 stay sequences for each new record.  Furthermore, information on
 subject characteristics prior to admission for other than the
 first sampled stay will be missing.

 Similarly, if the investigator wishes to make inferences about
 all current residents, it is necessary to add current resident
 cases to the NOK file and followup files for each resident with
 stays in both the discharge and current resident samples by
 duplicating the NOK information for the discharge resident case
 and changing the status to "current resident" by changing the ID
 number.  For example, cases with ID numbers in positions 67-73 of
 the NOK should be duplicated and treated as CRQ cases with the ID
 number changed to the CRQ ID found in positions 67-73.  Stay
 information must also be arranged to identify the appropriate
 sampled stay and stay sequences for each new record.  Moreover,
 because all of these cases were originally sampled as current
 resident cases (but retained as discharge cases on the NOK file),
 the CRQ weights in NOK positions 388-395, 396-403, and 404-411
 should be used to make estimates for current residents.  The DRQ
 weight fields could be blanked out for these resident cases.  The
 cases that were included in both the CRQ and DRQ samples are the
 only cases on the NOK file with both CRQ and DRQ weights.

 Analyses which make use of the DRQ sample to make inferences
 about persons must take into account the fact that the
 probability of being selected for the survey increases with the
 number of nursing home stays during the sample period, i.e,
 persons with many stays are more likely to be selected into the
 samples.  There are two ways to do this.  One way is to restrict
 estimates to cases where the sampled stay is the first eligible
 stay that the individual had during the sampling frame.  Or, the
 investigator can adjust the baseweight by dividing by the
 probability of an individual (not events) being selected and
 adjusting for non-response.  The calculation of the probability
 of selection for an individual with multiple stays is complex and
 should be computed under the guidance of a statistician.  The
 information needed to do both of these modifications is available
 in the DRQ files.  Additional complications result from analyses
 which involve combining the CRQ and DRQ samples.
