Appendix C Data Tables: Burden of Disease and Variation of Care As discussed in Chapter 3, the committee selected published data tables to use in the voting process to provide proxy indicators for burden of dis- ease and variation in care. The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) provided information on prevalence (Table C-1), morbidity (Table C-3) and cost (Table C-4), and the National Vital Statistics Report on mortal- ity (Table C-2). The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice analyzed clinical practice data according to variation in treatment for surgical procedures (Table C-5) and medical conditions (Table C-6) at the Institute of Medicine’s request. Data sources were chosen based on their year of production (with preference given to the most recent reports), representativeness of the nation’s entire population, and ability to provide age stratification.
