Product type:

MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:

Description:
   This Statistical Brief provides detailed estimates for the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized non-elderly (under age 65) population that was uninsured for the entire 2001-2004 period and identifies groups most at risk of lacking any coverage over that four-year period. Estimates are based on information from the Household Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS-HC) for 2003 and 2004, additional questions in MEPS to determine health insurance coverage for 2001 and 2002, and health insurance profiles from the National Health Interview Survey for 2002.
