Longitudinal Research Files - MS Access Downloads

Terms and Conditions of Data Use: please read before downloading data.


These files are intended to make our database easier to use for researchers conducting longitudinal studies. They include data for multiple years for each measure, most going back at least as far as 2008, allowing researchers to access several years' worth of Dartmouth Atlas rate data. In addition to adjusted rates, the files contain crude rates, numerators, denominators, 95% confidence limits, and standard errors. They are available here in Microsoft Access (.mdb) format for most years 2006-2016 (we are no longer updating this format). They are available on the Supplemental Research Data page in STATA (.dta) and SAS (.sas7bdat) format for 2008-2017 (Medicare Spending is 2011-2017).
