Examination of co-morbidity of chronic conditions using the Serious and Continuting Illness Policy and Practice Study (SCIPPS) Survey data


Understanding patterns and identifying common clusters of chronic diseases is useful for policymakers, researchers and clinicians to understand the care process, and potentially to save both provider and patient time and cost. However, only limited research has been conducted in this area. Furthermore, there remains ambiguity as those limited previous studies used different approaches and study findings may vary with approaches. With this project we are trying to estimate the prevalence of common chronic diseases and examines co-occurrence of diseases using a range of statistical methods.
