Description:
   This report describes changes to the sample design for the Insurance Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. The paper provides the background of the original sample design and the conditions that now exist that allow for change in this design. The report then describes the new strata and sample allocation scheme for the private sector portion of the sample and how these changes were developed, the changes made in a method used to restrict sample for private sector employers to contain the burden for large employers, and the changes made in the allocation of the survey's government sample. (Previously published as Working Paper #4008, February 2005.)
