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 Household Survey was fielded over four rounds of personal and telephone interviews at four-month intervals. Baseline data on household composition, employment, and insurance characteristics were updated each quarter, and information on all uses of and expenditures for health care services and sources of payment was obtained. Research File 34R contains original edited and constructed variables related to the employment section of the NMES Household Survey. Variables cover original dwelling unit, person number, round when job was first reported, job number, employment status (self-employed vs. wage earner), hours worked during week, days worked during week, wages before deductions, sick time available, labor union membership, number of employees at place of employment, and industry and occupation codes.
