A Comparison of Household and Medical Provider Reported Expenditures in the 1987 NMES

Abstract:
It is generally recognized that a household respondent is not always the best source of information on medical expenditures. This study will investigate the level of congruence between household reported data and medical provider reported data on medical expenditures using the Household Component and the Medical Provider Survey of the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES). The results of this research will provide insight regarding the magnitude of bias introduced into sample estimates of medical expenditures derived from household reported data.

Keywords:
Measurement error; medical expenditures; validation study.
