MEPS Launches Redesigned Database

The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) has redesigned its database of Household Component summary tables to be more user friendly.  The interface has been revamped to make navigation easier through multiple queries.  New features include the ability to view trends over time, automated plot generation, and R and SAS code to replicate the selected tables.  The online summary tables now provide an interactive platform that allows users to quickly access summary estimates at the national level on household medical utilization and expenditures, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, health insurance coverage, access to care and satisfaction with care, medical conditions, and prescribed medicine purchases.  The MEPS Web site will be live with the new interface during the week of January 22, 2018.
