Household Component Summary Tables
The Household Component summary tables
provide frequently used summary estimates at the national level on
household medical utilization and expenditures: demographic characteristics,
health conditions, health status, use of medical care services, charges and payments,
access to care, satisfaction with care, health insurance coverage, income, and employment.
Some of these tables can be customized online. State-level estimates of household medical utilization
and expenditures are also provided for selected states.Update notes
The Insurance Component summary tables provide estimates
at the national, state, and metro area levels on employer-based health insurance:
number and types of insurance plans,
premiums, benefits, contributions by employers and employees,
and employer characteristics. Update notes
Please note, in preparation for improvements in the data collection process, 2007 data for the Insurance Component was not collected.
MEPS employer-based health insurance tables are produced in the year following
data collection. Private-sector tables are posted in July; government and civilian tables are posted in November.
National-level tables: Private sector estimates by firm size, industry group, census regions and other characteristics; public sector data by state and local government types, government size, and census division; civilian estimates that incorporate both the private and state and local government sectors; national totals for enrollees and cost of health insurance coverage for both the private and public sectors.
State and metro area tables: State-level estimates for the private sector by firm size, industry groupings, ownership type, age of firm, employee characteristics, and average wage quartiles. Metropolitan area private sector estimates of premiums, employee contributions, enrollments, and take-up rates by firm size.
