MEPS Topics: Children's Insurance Coverage
Click here for full topic list.
""
Children's Insurance Coverage
Description: Using the age and the insurance coverage variables from the MEPS allows for analysis of children's health insurance coverage. MEPS also collects data on coverage provided by the State Children's Health Insurance Program or SCHIP. In addition to the tables, query tool, and publications below, person-level data files with insurance coverage and age variables can be downloaded for analysis.
Data tables: No specific tables on children's insurance coverage exist on the Web site although age categories are on most HC Summary Data Tables. For tables that can be customized, you may select a population based on age and/or define the age groupings as desired.
Analytic tools: You can use the MEPSnet/HC query tool to generate your own tables of health insurance variables by age.
