   The Long-Term Uninsured in America, 2002-2005: Estimates for the U.S. Population under Age 65
Product type:
   Statistical Brief 183
MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:
   August 28, 2007
Description:
   Using information from the Household Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS-HC) for 2004 and 2005, this Statistical Brief provides detailed estimates for the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized non-elderly (under age 65) population that was uninsured for the entire 2002-2005 period and identifies groups most at risk of lacking any coverage over that four-year period. The addition of questions in MEPS to determine health insurance coverage profiles for the period covering 2002 and 2003, in concert with information on health insurance profiles from the National Health Interview Survey for 2003, facilitated these analyses of extended longitudinal profiles.
