Performance Improvement 2001. Evaluation of Performance of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS)


The purpose of the project is to evaluate key aspects of the MEPS in terms of data quality, cost, and timeliness. The evaluation will focus on areas in which there have been programmatic concern, especially those in which the data now exist for evaluation and which would be implemented in a timely way to inform quality enhancements for MEPS. Where appropriate, the evaluation will identify priorities for redesign, and outline potential cost-effective alternatives.
