MEPS Topics: Priority Conditions -- Strokes
Click here for full topic list.
Priority Conditions -- Strokes
Description: MEPS collects information about a select group of medical conditions that have been specified by the Agency for HealthCare Research and Quality as "priority conditions." These conditions, selected for their prevalence, expense, or relevance to policy, are: hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, asthma, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD), and strokes.
Stroke information is collected by asking respondents whether they have ever been diagnosed as having had a stroke. Strokes can also be identified by the condition code associated with medical events reported during the reference period. In addition to the tables and publications below, person-level data files with stroke variables can be downloaded for analysis.
Data tables: Stroke-related tables are available in an interactive format on the Household Component Summary Tables platform.
Analytic tools: No condition or stroke variables are available on the MEPSnet/HC query tool at this time.
Publications: Publications are listed in reverse chronological order (most recent first).
