Save the Date for MEPS Workshop
AHRQ will be conducting a two-day hands-on MEPS Data User Workshop in Rockville, MD, on April 26-27, 2010.
Day 1 of this workshop will consist of lectures designed to provide a general overview of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) including information about the survey design, file content, and the construction of analytic files using data from the Household Component. Particular emphasis will be on health care utilization, expenditures, and medical conditions.
On Day 2, participants will apply the knowledge gained from the previous day's lecture to formulate a research plan that utilizes the various MEPS-HC files and linkage capabilities. A PC will be available for each participant.
After attending this workshop, each participant will be able to construct an analytic file and begin to conduct analyses. A basic knowledge of SAS programming is desirable. Programmers and AHRQ staff will be available to provide assistance.
Full program Description, Registration Form, and Logistical Information will be available March 1 on the MEPS Web site at http://www.meps.ahrq.gov
