The codebooks in this volume describe the contents of three data files from the Health Insurance Experiment, a large social experiment conducted by The RAND Corporation from 1974 to 1982 in six sites across the United States. This volume documents files in the medical history questionnaire series, a series of survey instruments that gathered self-reported health status and health satisfaction data primarily from insured participants in the experiment. It contains the codebooks for the adult enrollment and exit Form A files, which consist of identifying variables for each participant and question variables from the various enrollment and exit medical history questionnaires. Form A collected subjective evaluations, i.e., perceptions and attitudes concerning health care.
