MAX and Survey Linkages

Metadata Updated: July 14, 2017

CMS is interested in linking MAX files with survey data, including four surveys conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) - the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the Second Longitudinal Study of Aging (LSOA II), and the National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS). In linking the MAX files to the NCHS survey data, CMS can combine the best source of data on Medicaid services with the best sources of data on health status and risk factors. The combined files can be extraordinarily valuable to researchers conducting comparative effectiveness research as well as to the wider health research community.
