Health Insurance, Access, and Use: United States. Tabulations from the 1997 National Survey of America's Families. State Profiles. Assessing the New Federalism: An Urban Institute Program To Assess Changing Social Policies.
Urban Inst., Washington, DC.
The tables in this document are based on data collected through the National Survey of America's Families (NSAF), a household survey conducted as part of the Assessing the New Federalism project. The project is national in scope, but has selected 13 focal states for intensive study. These tabulations are based on the 1997 round of the NSAF. They provide information on a variety of measures of insurance coverage, access to care, and health services use. The data presented on the numbers of uninsured and the uninsurance rates show a lower percentage of children and nonelderly adults being uninsured than reported by the Census. The report's tables provide basic descriptive data in an easily accessible form, but they do not offer interpretations or explanations. Tables 1 through 10 show the distribution of types of insurance coverage. Other tables describe the uninsured, Medicaid recipients, and low-come groups. Information is also provided about access to health care for children by type of insurance. (Contains 17 tables, 5 references, and 25 endnotes.) (SLD)
