Description
  • Abstract

    This dataset provides information gathered in 1973 from facilities providing nursing care to their residents. Nursing homes, their staff, and residents were surveyed. Data from the facility questionnaire include services offered, type of ownership, total number of beds, total number of residents, whether facility participated in Medicare and Medicaid, 1972 admissions, discharges, and deaths, number of patients receiving specific services and treatments, number of physicians, staff hours and payroll, and expenses. The resident questionnaire generated information on each resident's age, race, marital status, date of admission, prior living arrangements, reason for admission, diagnosis, chronic conditions, services received, medication, assistance with daily activities, frequency of doctor visits, and source of payment. The staff questionnaire data include sex, race, occupation, hours worked per week, salary, and education.
