Note: “X” indicates a MEPS Round “active” for Back Pain utilization, “O” indicates a Round “inactive” for Back Pain Utilization. Reading the first row as example, n=809 adult MEPS respondents utilized NO Back Pain services (i.e. “inactive”) in Rounds 1–4 with only Round 5 being “active” for Back Pain utilization, hence their temporally-ordered Round-By-Round Pattern reads “OOOOX”.

This table is based on data from the MEPS Utilization Events files to map temporal utilization of ambulatory health services for back pain across All-5-Rounds of MEPS 2-year longitudinal panel. Tabled Data are for adults, pooled across MEPS Panels 5-through-10 (N=8,244).
