Abstract:

The Bureau of Health Professions Area Resource File is a county-based data file summarizing secondary data from a wide variety of sources to facilitate health analysis. This 1995 release of the Area Resource File contains over 7,000 data elements for all counties in the United States with the exception of Alaska, for which there is a state total, and certain independent cities that have been combined into their appropriate counties. The data elements include: (1) County descriptor codes (name, FIPS, HSA, PSRO, SMSA, SEA, BEA, city size, P/MSA, Census Contiguous County, shortage area designation, 1992 [Primary] Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and 1994 Rural/Urban Continuum Codes, etc.), (2) Health professions data (number of professionals registered as M.D., D.O., DDS, R.N., L.P.N., veterinarian, pharmacist, optometrist, podiatrist, and dental hygienist, along with critical shortage codes, 1993 physicians by specialty, and major professional activity), (3) Health facility data (hospital size, type, utilization, staffing and services, nursing home data, and HMO enrollment for 1976 through 1993), (4) Utilization data (rate, inpatient days, outpatient visits, and surgical operations), (5) Population data (size, composition, employment, education, housing, morbidity, natality, mortality by cause, sex, race, and age), (6) Economic data (total income, per capita income, median income, income distribution, and AFDC recipients), (7) Health professions training data (training programs, enrollments, and graduates by type), (8) Expenditure data (hospital expenditures, Medicare enrollments and reimbursements, and Medicare prevailing charge data), and (9) Environment data (land area, large animal population, elevation, latitude and longitude of population centroid, water hardness index, and climate data)....
