Abstract

We look at data from the 2010 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) focusing on the dental data. MEPS is a set of large-scale surveys of families and individuals, their medical providers, and employers across the United States. MEPS collects data on the specific health services that Americans use, how frequently they use them, the cost of these services, and how they are paid for, as well as data on the cost, scope, and breadth of health insurance held by and available to United States workers. We generate our questions based on the interest of local dentists. We use advanced statistical analysis, data manipulation and other analysis tools to examine a broad swath of questions that the local dentists seek to answer.
