Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains the results of a survey conducted to examine the costs of providing (1) transportation and (2) in-home services to the elderly in the United States in 1982-1983. Both parts of the study examined the costs of administrative, professional, and clerical staff, including wages paid, number of full- and part-time staff, and fringe benefits, and office expenses, such as the cost of office machines, equipment, supplies, and furniture. Insurance and taxes paid were also investigated, as were accounting, advertising, and legal counsel costs. The transportation services section of the study classified agencies providing the services studied by type, e.g., private for-profit, private non-profit, public, and other. This portion of the study also determined vehicle descriptions, revenue by source, and hours that service was provided. The in-home services section of the study examined several types of services offered, e.g., nursing care, therapy, personal care, housekeeping, physician visits, nutrition and social service counseling, and companionship. This section also classified agencies providing services by type, e.g., government-based public health, government-based social services, private non-profit, and private for-profit.
