Product type:
   Statistical Brief 123
MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:
   March 31, 2006
Description:
   Using information from the Household Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS-HC) for 2002 and 2003, this Statistical Brief provides detailed estimates for the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized non-elderly (under age 65) population that was uninsured for the entire 20002003 period and identifies groups most at risk of lacking any coverage over that four-year period. Additional questions in MEPS for the period covering 2000 and 2001 and information on health insurance profiles from the 2001 National Health Interview Survey facilitated these analyses of extended longitudinal profiles.
