Medicaid--Summary by State: 2000 to 2004

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 141):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629

This dataset consists of a table of 57 rows and 14 columns.

(42,887 represents 42,887,000). For year ending September 30. See headnote, Table 140


  1. Persons who had payments made on their behalf at any time
    during the fiscal year.
  2. Payments are for fiscal year and reflect federal and state
    contribution payments. Data exclude disproportionate share hospital payments.
    Disproportionate share hospitals receive higher medicaid reimbursement
    than other hospitals because they treat a disproportionate share of Medicaid patients.
  3. 2004 beneficiary data are not available for Tennessee: 2003 data are reported.
