Codebooks for Insurance Preference Files
Relation Between Expense Limit and Premium
The codebooks in this volume describe the contents of two 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 under a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This Note documents the two files in the insurance preference series — survey instruments that gathered information on the amount that experiment participants would be willing to spend on health insurance. The survey instruments were administered to heads of families at the time of exit from the experiment. The files themselves consist of identifying variables for each respondent and question variables from the questionnaires.
