Analysis of ENT diagnoses in the National Ambulatory Care Survey

CSR gave technical assistance to Jose Mattos, MD-MPH student at UVa., for a project analyzing data on ear, nose and throat diagnoses from the National Ambulatory Care Survey, a large, annual data collectiion funded by CDC. The study focused on changes over time in presentation of asthma and other complaints, separating data by demographic groups. Data for specific ailments and years had to be extracted from multiple NAMCS data sets. Due to the weighting scheme used in this data set, complex sampling analysis methods in STATA needed to be applied to the custom-built final data set..
