Abstract: This collection comprises the third round of the Community Tracking Study (CTS) Household Survey. The CTS, sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is a national study designed to track changes in the health care system and the effects of those changes on people. Fifty-one metropolitan areas and nine nonmetropolitan areas were randomly selected to form the core of the CTS and to be representative of the nation as a whole. As in the first two rounds of the Household Survey (ICPSR 2524 and 3199), the third round was administered to households in the 60 CTS sites and to a supplemental national sample of households. Respondents provided information about household composition and demographic characteristics, health insurance coverage, use of health services, unmet health care needs, out-of-pocket expenses for health care, usual source of care, patient trust and satisfaction, last visit to a medical provider, health status and presence of chronic health conditions, risk behaviors and smoking, and employment, earnings, and income. A new set of sample design variables was added to the third round data for variance estimation by statistical software packages other than SUDAAN.
