Report on Problems and Suggestions for Improving the NLTCS Files for 1982 and 1984


This paper summarizes the problems with and suggestions for improving the National Long-Term Care Survey (NLTCS) files. It incorporates many of the concerns and ideas users stated at a Forum on the NLTCS. It outlines concrete areas where improvements and increased technical support are needed so that the research community can conduct the most useful and credible studies possible. Eliminating as many of these problems as possible will go a long way toward freeing analysts to do more research with the data, rather than having to do research about the data. [18 PDF pages]
