Register now for the September 2004 MEPS data users' workshop

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality will hold a 2-day, hands-on workshop September 20-21, 2004, to facilitate the use of data files from the MEPS Household Component (MEPS-HC). The workshop will be held in the conference facility at the John M. Eisenberg Building in Rockville, MD. It will focus on public use data files from the MEPS-HC on prescribed medicines and health insurance status (person-level data). The goal is to facilitate use of the data files by health services researchers by providing both practical information about MEPS files and an opportunity to construct analytic files with the assistance of AHRQ staff. A PC will be available for each participant. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants, and the cost is $50 for the 2-day, hands-on computer lab.

Go to the MEPS Web site at and select "Workshop" for program descriptions, registration forms, and logistical information.
