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. Public Use Tape 17 is the first release of expenditure and use data from the IPC. It provides demographic information such as race, age, sex, education, veteran status, medical history, income, family, date of admission, vital status, residence history, use of long-term care, insurance coverage, and home ownership. Additional information covers the respondent's institutional stays in 1987, dates and lengths of stays, and characteristics of the institution, including size, type, ownership, and certification status. Also provided are data on expenses and sources of payments for services rendered in nursing and personal care homes.
