Relationships between State Medicaid program characteristics and program outputs are analyzed in this statistical report,
using 1980 cross-sectional data from a variety of sources. The year 1980 furnishes a baseline against which program changes
following the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 and the 1982 economic recession can be evaluated. Utilization and
expenditures are modeled separately for each aid category and each major service category. This use of multiple models allows
for measurement of the effect of program controls that might not appear in models of total utilization and expenditures.
