I read a paper titled 'State generic substitution laws can lower drug outlays under medicaid'. It uses quarterly state level medicaid drug utilization data. However, I could only find yearly data at the state level. Has anyone has experience in this data set.

  • $\begingroup$ Please link the paper, they should have it listed and you just missed the citation. $\endgroup$ – FooBar Feb 5 '15 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20606192 The link is here. I checked their references.Their link no longer works. $\endgroup$ – Yan Song Feb 5 '15 at 19:10
  • $\begingroup$ You might want to call the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services directly and ask them about why the link is broken. $\endgroup$ – FooBar Feb 5 '15 at 19:13
  • $\begingroup$ This answer is not helpful at all. $\endgroup$ – Yan Song Feb 5 '15 at 19:25
  • $\begingroup$ That's why it's a comment, not an answer. By god, if I knew a specific source for some data and the source was offline, the very first place I would ask would be the provider of the data, not an unrelated online Q&A site. $\endgroup$ – FooBar Feb 5 '15 at 19:33
