For all persons eligible for the Access to Care supplement (ACCESSELIG) who have a usual source of care (USUALPL), USCPRFAC reports whether the person goes to a facility, a provider, or a provider in a facility for their usual source of care.
USCPRFAC is collected as part of the Access to Care supplement, which gathers information on barriers family members have faced in obtaining needed health care, the usual source of care for all family members, and characteristics of usual source of care health providers. For related variables and more information, please see USUALPL.
In 2001, two individuals are eligible for the Access to Care Supplement (ACCESSELIG) and indicate having a usual source of care (USUALPL), but are not in universe for USCPRFAC. Otherwise, the stated universe holds true.
Codes and Frequencies
In all years other than 1996, the question is asked of persons in rounds two and four of data collection. No persons participated in round four of data collection in 1996, given the MEPS panel design. Otherwise, there are no comparability issues.
