Save the Date for MEPS Data Users' Workshop

Save the Date for MEPS Data Users' Workshop


Medical Expenditure Panel Survey

AHRQ will be conducting a two-day hands-on MEPS Data Users’ Workshop in Rockville, MD, on September 9-10, 2015.
Day 1 of this workshop will consist of lectures designed to provide a general overview of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) along with lectures on MEPS-HC survey design, file content, and statistical issues and challenges as well as on health care utilization, expenditures, and medical conditions. Day 2 of the workshop is intended to give hands-on experience to participants. A laptop computer will be provided to each participant. The participants will apply the knowledge gained from the previous day's lectures and work with programmers and analysts on MEPS data. They will learn how to identify and assemble variables to build a data file to answer their research questions. Sample SAS as well as STATA exercises will be demonstrated. There will be time allotted for open discussion and for answering specific research questions from participants.  To fully benefit from the second day, participants must attend the first day of the workshop.
The workshop is offered free of charge.
A full program description, registration form, and logistical information will be available by the last week of July on the Workshops & Events page of the MEPS Web site at http://meps.ahrq.gov/mepsweb/about_meps/workshops_events.jsp.
