Description

The US national Medicare inpatient hospital database is referred to as the Medpar data, which is prepared yearly from hospital filing records. Medpar files for each state are also prepared. The full Medpar data consists of 115 variables. The national Medpar has some 14 million records, with one record for each hospilitiztion. The data in the medpar file comes from 1991 Medicare files for the state of Arizona. The data are limited to only one diagnostic group (DRG 112). Patient data have been randomly selected from the original data.
