Abstract: The National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) series provides information on health expenditures by or on behalf of families and individuals, the financing of these expenditures, and each person's use of services. The Institutional Population Component (IPC) is a survey of nursing and personal care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded and residents admitted to those facilities. Information was collected on facilities and their residents at several points during 1987. Use and expenditure estimates for institutionalized persons can be combined with those from the Household component for composite estimates covering most of the civilian population. Information on facilities and residents was collected from facility administrators and caregivers, with additional information collected from next of kin or other knowledgeable respondents. These data were supplemented by Medicare claims information for covered sample persons. Research File 28R provides information collected in the Institutional Use and Expenditure Questionnaire (IUEQ) regarding health care providers, including Medicaid providers. The IUEQ was administered during each round of the IPC to eligible facilities in which sample persons had one or more stays. Part 1, Summary Data, includes demographic characteristics such as age, race, sex, date of admission to sampled facility, and vital status. Part 2, IUEQ Administration and Medical Provider Probes Data, supplies information on what types of medical providers were seen, frequency of any private duty nursing or attendant care services received, and whether the provider of that service was an employee or contractor of the facility, as well as frequency of emergency room and outpatient department visits. Part 3, Medical Provider Utilization Data, includes information about the type of provider, the number of times the provider was seen in total and the number of times in the facility, the number of times the sample person was seen by a provider paid by the facility, and whether that provider was an employee or a contractor of the facility.
