The limitations noted above notwithstanding, the NMES Institutional Population Component, including these initial data, as well as the service utilization, costs, resident movement and other data yet to be released, is an important data base for understanding the characteristics, needs and services of persons with mental retardation and related co
The sample size and broad coverage of mental retardation facilities and residents in the Institutional Population Component of NMES will yield much information of value regarding the residential living arrangements of persons with mental retardation and related conditions. At the same time the study's sample frame limitations, and thereby its samp
There are at least three conditions that would have to prevail to make this or any similar alternative estimation procedure adequate and preferable to using original NMES statistics for estimating persons with mental retardation and related conditions in different sizes and types of residential facilities. These include the following:
The simplest alternative procedure for using the Institutional Population Component statistics to obtain more realistic estimates of the populations of residential facilities for people with mental retardation, particularly the smaller ones, is to in effect reweight its sample to reflect known populations of different types of facilities.
Part I of this report noted a number of significant limitations in the sample frame for the Institutional Population Component of NMES. It was noted that there is strong evidence that this caused substantial underrepresentation of smaller community-based residential facilities and their residents in the National Medical Expenditure Survey.
The following tables present data on a range of diagnostic, medical and functional skills of residents of mental retardation facilities grouped by type of operation, ICF-MR certification status, and facility size. The estimates are from the Baseline Questionnaire.
Level of Retardation/Type of Related Conditions
Table 7 and Table 8 present basic resident movement statistics for calendar year 1986 for ICF-MR and noncertified facilities by type of operation and size. Movement is expressed as a percentage of the "current residents." Movement data were based on Facility Questionnaire responses, but included only facilities open for all of 1986.
The success of any effort to obtain an unbiased, representative, sample of facilities and their residents is dependent on comprehensive identification of all (or as close to all as possible) facilities in the universe of facilities of the type being studied. Because most sample studies attempt to make population estimates by weighting sample membe
Despite the many limitations that can be noted about the federal commitment to data gathering on persons with mental retardation and related conditions in institutional settings, there have been a number of useful recent sources of national statistics, all conducted or substantially supported by Federal government agencies. The most significant an
This report presents selected statistics gathered on residential facilities designated as mental retardation facilities and on the residents of those facilities as part of the Institutional Population Component of the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES). The report is divided into 4 parts. Part 1 presents general background to and over
This issue brief focuses on minors who are victimized by sex traffickers across the U. S. and is intended to provide practical information about the characteristics and needs of these minors and describe the type of residential programs and facilities currently providing services for this population.
This report presents selected statistics gathered on residential facilities designated as mental retardation facilities and their residents as part of the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey Institutional Population Component (NMES/IPC). In addition to presenting a general background and overview of NMES the design of NMES/IPC, data avail
Missouri operates an Administrative Agent System. In this system, mental health services are accessed through 25 service areas, with each service area serving particular counties of the state. Administrative Agents and/or Affiliates (CMHCs) are responsible for providing these services. These designated centers serve as entry/exit points in each ge
This report presents findings from a study of the implementation of coordinated specialty care services provided to individuals who are experiencing the early stages of schizophrenia as part of the National Institute of Mental Health’s (NIMH’s) Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) initiative. This NIMH initiative is a test o
States, of course, cannot directly control the balance of institutional and community care for elderly and Medicaid enrollees with disabilities. Balance is instead the result of each state's Medicaid LTSS eligibility and payment policies, regulation, and the extent of communication and coordination with providers and enrollees.
