National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample (NIS)
is the largest all-payer inpatient care database in the United States, containing data on more than seven million hospital stays. Its large sample size is ideal for developing national and regional estimates and enables analyses of rare conditions, uncommon treatments, and special populations. The following links provide SPSS load programs for the NIS.
SPSS load programs may be used to load the ASCII data files into SPSS. There is one SPSS load program for each data file. SPSS load programs are provided by year. SPSS load programs for data years prior to 1998 are provided with the data on the NIS Documentation CDs.
