Dataset: Stroke Recovery in Underserved Populations 2005-2006 (SRUP)

Basic Information
Dataset Full Name Stroke Recovery in Underserved Populations 2005-2006
Dataset Acronym SRUP
Summary The SRUP study is a longitudinal study of stroke patients admitted to inpatient rehabilitation facilities, designed to examine the effects and interactions of positive emotion and social networks in the motor and cognitive recovery of stroke patients in underserved groups. Data was collected at four points in time: at admission and discharge from the rehabilitation facility as well as follow-ups at 3 and 12 months post discharge.

The study was designed at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Inpatient and follow up data were collected by the IT Health Track.

Data Type(s) Clinical
Sponsoring Agency/Entity National Institutes of Health (NIH):

Health Conditions/Disability Measures
Health Condition(s)

ICD-9 diagnostic codes, Depression, stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, ischemic stroke, other circulatory disease, hemiplegia, hemiparesis, paralysis, aphasia, dysphagia, neuromuscular symptoms.

Disability Measures Functional Independence Measure (FIM), Duke-UNC Functional Social Support Questionnaire, Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression (CES-D), PART-PROTM Home and Community Participation Measure.
Measures/Outcomes of Interest
Topics Rehabilitation Outcomes in Stroke Patients, Mind-Body Health, Positive Attitude and Well-Being, Social, Motor and Cognitive Function, Functional Status Recovery, Social Networks Interactions, Functional Independence, Health Disparities in Underserved Populations, Stroke Comorbidities.
Sample Population Individuals with stroke admitted to 11 inpatient rehabilitation facilities in 9 different states in 2005-2006.
Sample Size/Notes 1,219 cases,1,206 unique patients
Unit of Observation Patient and case level
Continent(s) North America

United States

Geographic Coverage 11 inpatient rehabilitation facilities located in nine states: California, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Florida, Washington, and Texas
Geographic Specificity Individual Inpatient Rehabilitation facility
Special Population(s)

Aging/Older people

Data Collection
Data Collection Mode Admission and Discharge: In person assessment and interview during inpatient rehabilitation stay
Post discharge follow-up: telephone interview
Years Collected 2005-2006
Data Collection Frequency

Four time points of data collection:

  • Admission to rehabilitation facility
  • Discharge
  • 3 months Post discharge
  • 12 months Post discharge.
Strengths and Limitations
Strengths Use of ICD-9 diagnostic codes and of validated and reliable instruments. Large sample size; adequate to answer questions based on specific stroke characteristics. Functional, emotional and participation measures can be used as outcomes. Comparisons on outcomes can be assessed longitudinally. 85% of eligible respondents participated
Limitations Inpatient Rehabilitation facilities were not randomly chosen, limiting potential generalizability to national level. Underrepresentation of Hispanics limits generalizability to this ethnic group. Analysis on rehabilitation facility level may be problematic due to unbalanced sample sizes/small sample sizes. Stroke severity characterization unavailable
