Scoring manual, adult health status and patient satisfaction measures used in RAND's health insurance experiment
This Note (1) presents the self-administered health status and attitudinal batteries that RAND's Health Insurance Experiment assessed on adults and (2) documents their scoring rules. It is intended for those who plan to use or adapt these measures for their own research. Each chapter discusses a particular set of measures: physical and role functioning, mental health, social resources and contacts, general health perceptions, serious and minor symptoms, medical care satisfaction, and dental care satisfaction. Also discussed are frequency distributions and the handling of missing data.
