Project Description

This project involved the use of data from the 2000-2005 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) to examine racial differences in persistently and episodically high out-of-pocket (OOP) health care expenses among persons with and without chronic conditions. The MEPS data were easily accessible from the MEPS website. The goals for the project are outlined below.
