Register Now for MEPS Data Users’ Workshop April 28–29
Registration is open for a two-day, hands-on data users' workshop on the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) April 28–29 in Rockville, Maryland. Day one of the workshop consists of lectures that provide a general overview of MEPS, including information about survey design, file content and the construction of analytic files. Particular emphasis will be on health care utilization, expenditures and medical conditions. On the second day, a laptop will be provided for each participant to use to apply the knowledge gained from the previous day's lectures and work with programmers and analysts on MEPS data. To fully benefit from the second day, participants should have some prior knowledge of MEPS. A basic knowledge of SAS software is desirable, but not essential.
