This dataset contains all alpha data reported on a cost report such as hospital name, address, dates, and questions that require a ‘yes’ response.

The Hospital Medicare Cost Report table is the parent of the other tables and contains the unique primary key field Report_Record_Number. The field Report_Record_Number is a foreign key in the other tables. That is, all data in all tables are related by the value of the field Report_Record_Number.
