This appendix offers a codebook for the MLM dataset available in “Medical Liability Insurance Premia 1990-2015: Dataset, Literature Review, and Summary Information,” plus detailed documentation on the procedures used to create the MLM dataset. We document features of the MLM and NAIC premium data with heat maps, comparing patterns in MLM premia to changes in tort reform laws and medical malpractice payout data from the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB).
You can download this Appendix, together with the Codebook, statistical code, and the public version of the dataset (which includes MLM data from 1990-2002) from http://ssrn.com/abstract=2716911. To obtain the full dataset, with MLM data through 2015, you must first purchase a subscription to MLM. To do so, please contact Michael Matray, the editor of MLM, at email@example.com. The current cost is $395 for a one-year subscription. MLM will confirm your subscription to us, and we will then provide the link to the full dataset to you.
