The 2014 Preventive Care Self-Administered Questionnaire (PSAQ), a paper-and-pencil questionnaire was fielded during Panel 18 Round 5 of the 2014 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS). The survey was designed to collect a variety of person-level preventive health care data for adults. A subset of adults age 35 and older as of the Round 5 interview date (AGE53X >= 35) in MEPS households were asked to complete a PSAQ. The questionnaires were administered in early 2015.
