Methodology Notes

Data include residents of CMS-certified nursing homes who ever had an assessment (in the MDS dataset). Percentage includes U.S. residents (i.e., not adjusted for state or facility). Residents who lived in multiple states during a single year were included once in each state they lived in.

Vaccination status is ascertained by the staff member completing the resident assessment instrument based on medical records.

Caveats and Limitations
These data do not allow us to tell if a resident lived in multiple states. Thus, a resident will be included not more than once in a state, but may be included in more than one state. Past data show that only about 2-4 percent of residents lived in more than one state during the target period. A resident will be considered vaccinated if they were ever reported to be vaccinated with PPV at any assessment.
