Abstract The background on the Medicaid program included in Chapter II addresses eligibility groups, service coverage, waiver programs, service delivery and reimbursement methods, and other sources of state variation in Medicaid that researchers need to consider when using Medicaid data for research. In Chapter III, we describe the sources of Mini-MAX data and the processing stages through which the data pass before the Mini-MAX files are produced. This description is intended to provide background to help researchers better understand the data in the Mini-MAX files. In Chapter IV, we provide an overview of the variables included in the Mini-MAX files. We describe the sample design and weighting for Mini-MAX in Chapter V. This section will provide the background needed to use the sample file weights and calculate standard errors. Finally, in Chapter VI, we highlight important limitations of the Mini-MAX data and discuss issues to consider when designing and conducting a study with Mini-MAX.
