|Title:||National Nursing Home Survey Followup, 1987 [United States]: Wave I|
|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Health and Human Services. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)|
|Abstract:||The National Nursing Home Survey Follow-Up (NNHSF) is a longitudinal study that followed the cohort of current residents and discharged residents sampled in the NATIONAL NURSING HOME SURVEY, 1985 (ICPSR 8914). The NNHSF extends the period of observation of these utilization patterns by approximately five years after the baseline nursing home interview. The primary purpose is to provide data on the flow of persons in and out of long-term care facilities and hospitals. The NNHSF was conducted in three waves. Wave I was administered between August and December 1987, Wave II between July and November 1988 (ICPSR 9838), and Wave III between February and April 1990. Data are available on the subject's vital status, living arrangements, nursing home stays, hospital stays, and source of payment for hospital and nursing home stays.|
