The State of the Census
Background/Aims: HMORN institutions are geocoding their patients in a variety of ways with a variety of tools. Neighborhood data from the Census Bureau and American Community Survey can then be used as proxies for data that is not captured, such as socioeconomic status. We are interested in understanding how variation across institutions can affect estimates and variances.
Methods: Descriptive statistics. Comparison of simple linear models with mixed models (i.e. hierarchical linear models or latent variable models).
Results: Results are forthcoming.
Discussion: Conclusions to follow.
