For all persons eligible for the Access to Care section (ACCESSELIG) who have a usual source of care (USUALPL) that is a facility (USCPRFAC), USCUPR indicates whether there is a particular provider that the respondent see when they go to their usual source of care facility.
USCUPR is collected as part of the Access to Care section, 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. Please see USCPRFAC for all variables pertaining to the characteristics of the respondent's usual source of care and ACCESSELIG for more information about the Access to Care section.
IPUMS MEPS reports the universe for each variable based on a thorough review of the original MEPS documentation. Investigating the data may reveal cases that do not meet the stated universe. Users are encouraged to validate universes for their analyses.
