Update Notes

MEPS HC-034: 2001 P5R3/P6R1 Population Characteristics

Update #3: 11/22/13

SPSS and STATA Programming Statements have been added.

Update #2: 02/28/03

The Medicaid variables--MCAID13 and MCAID13X--also include those identified as covered by State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

Update #1: 08/29/02

The marital status variable in the HC-034 file documentation has been updated to clarify the procedure for coding rounds.  This correction in the documentation did not affect the data, thus there has been no change to the data file. The clarification for this variable is as follows:

"When marital status was missing in the preceding round and provided in the current round, then the person was coded to the "in round" marital state. For example, if marital status was not available from the National Health Interview Survey, and the person's marital status was reported as married in round 1 of MEPS, then the person would be coded as "7 married in round" for round 1 of MEPS."
