Summary
This data collection contains two data files derived from information gathered in the initial screening and Round 1 interviews of the Household Survey component of the 1987 NATIONAL MEDICAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY (NMES). The Person File contains data on each person sampled in the first round of the Household Survey. Data are included on each sampled person's self-reported coverage under private health insurance and public programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and CAMPUS/CAMPVA. In addition, data describe difficulties and help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, handling money, walking, shopping, preparation of meals, light housekeeping, and the use of telephones and transportation. For persons with difficulties in activities of daily living, there is also information on prior nursing home institutionalization and the use of special equipment, adult day care, senior centers, home-delivered and congregate meals, special transportation, and telephone assurance. The Person File covers a broad range of personal background variables: age, sex, race, ethnicity, Hispanic ancestry, marital status, family relationships, educational status, employment status, occupation, industry, wages and salary, length of time at work, characteristics of the workplace, union membership, and military service. The Home Health Provider File contains data (as reported by the Household Survey respondents) on each provider of formal or informal services who came to the home of a person in the Household Survey sample within a month of the Round 1 interview. Information in the Home Health Provider File includes date of the provider's last visit, length of stay in the home, type of services rendered, provider's place of work, provider's medical specialty, if any, and whether or not the provider was a relative of the person receiving help
