Our 279th and 280th profiles have just been added to B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA® - The National Longitudinal Mortality Study (NLMS) (USA), and Medicare (USA)

The National Longitudinal Mortality Study (NLMS) (USA) is a database developed for the purpose of studying the effects of demographic and socio-economic characteristics on U.S. mortality rates. It is a unique research database in that it is based on a random sample of non-institutionalized U.S. population. It consists of U.S. Census Bureau data from Current Population Surveys, Annual Social and Economic Supplements and a subset of the 1980 Census combined with death certificate information to identify mortality status and cause of death.

Medicare (USA) is a government-run social insurance program for the elderly administered by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Specifically, Medicare covers persons 65 years of age or older who are legal residents of U.S. for at least 5 years. Currently, there are >55 million beneficiaries.
