Description
  • Abstract

    The National Medical Care Utilization and Expenditure Survey (NMCUES), 1980 was designed to produce a database of detailed information on the country's health status, patterns of health care utilization, charges for services received, and methods of payment. NMCUES consists of three components: the National Household Survey (HHS), the State Medicaid Household Survey (SMHS), and the Administrative Records Survey (ARS). The seven NMCUES public use files making up this data collection contain respondent data from the National Household Survey (HHS) only and include information on utilization, expenditures, conditions, disabilities, and demographic characteristics. The first six files in the collection provide information on medical visits, dental visits, hospital stays, prescribed medicines, and health conditions for all persons residing in the sample households at each of five interview sessions. The seventh (Family) file contains data from the first six files on key family reporting units or RUs (defined as an individual or group of persons related to each other by blood, marriage, adoption, or foster parent/child relationship, whose usual residence was the assigned sample housing unit) for which there were longitudinal data on (1) eligible residents at the time of the round one interview, their nonresident unmarried college students, and babies born into the families or members who returned from the military, institutions, or abroad during the year, and (2) new RUs formed by such key members during the year.
