  • Abstract

    The Bureau of Health Professions Area Resource File is a county-based data file summarizing secondary data from a wide variety of sources into a single file to facilitate health analysis. The file contains over 6,000 data elements for all counties in the United States with the exception of Alaska, for which there is a state total, and certain independent cities that have been combined into their appropriate counties. The data elements include: (1) County descriptor codes (name, FIPS, HSA, PSRO, SMSA, SEA, BEA, city size, P/MSA, Census Contiguous County, shortage area designation, etc.), (2) Health professions data (number of professionals registered as M.D., D.O., DDS, R.N., L.P.N., veterinarian, pharmacist, optometrist, podiatrist, and dental hygienist), (3) Health facility data (hospital size, type, utilization, staffing and services, and nursing home data), (4) Population data (size, composition, employment, housing, morbidity, natality, mortality by cause, by sex and race, and by age, and crime data), (5) Health Professions Training data (training programs, enrollments, and graduates by type), (6) Expenditure data (hospital expenditures, Medicare enrollments and reimbursements, and Medicare prevailing charge data), (7) Economic data (total, per capita, and median income, income distribution, and AFDC recipients), and (8) Environment data (land area, large animal population, elevation, latitude and longitude of population centroid, water hardness index, and climate data).
