This database includes the averages (2006, 2010, 2014, 2016 and 2017) of state financial condition in the United States, Medicaid spending per enrollee and a number of control variables in an analysis of the effects of Medicaid spending on state financial condition. The SPSS database is included here. The hypothesis was that the effects were significant and possibly positive. I found an offsetting effect on revenues and expenditures which nulled the overall effect on state financial condition.


Steps to reproduce

Use a MR to test the effects of the controls on the DVs. Use a 2SLS to test the effects of the remaining controls and the main predictor (Medicaid spending per enrollee) on the DVs.
