Fee Policies for U.S. Clinics With and Without
Title X Funding, 1983-1984
This study includes data on clinic policies regarding patient fees, using as its standard what a clinic would charge a new pill patient for her first visit, plus the cost of a 3 month supply of pills. The respondents are grouped based on whether or not they receive Title X funding, with additional data providing information on how patients' incomes are verified, how fee levels are arrived at, and the number of sites covered by these policies. The survey was conducted from December 1983 to January 1984 using a questionnaire mailed to agencies originally surveyed in 1982 (separately documented as DAAPPP Data Set No. 71-72). A total of 317 out of 543 agencies responded with useful information, and responses were weighted to reflect the distribution of organized providers by type of agency.
Note for users of DAAPPP Data Sets #01-B1
DAAPPP data sets 01 through B1 are comprised of a User's Guide, SPSS syntax files (*.SPS or *.SPX) and raw data files only. Most of these datasets contain SPSS syntax files that use Job Control Language (JCL) from 1980s versions of SPSS-X. Because the syntax is old, the syntax files require editing to conform to the current syntax standards used by SPSS/Windows or SPSS/Unix. If you require technical assistance in using or editing these syntax files, please contact Sociometrics' Data Support Group at 800.846.3475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
