Insurance Component National-Level Summary Tables
Display page in Printer Friendly Format printer-friendly ""

The national-level Insurance Component tables provide private sector data by firm size, industry group, census region and other characteristics; public sector data by state and local government type, 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.

Insurance Component estimates are available online in tabular form. You can also use the interactive query tools, MEPSnet, to access statistics and trends about health insurance. Read Technical Notes and Survey Documentation for details on the collection of insurance data.

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 early Spring.

Information describing techniques for producing more efficient search results is available on our search help page.

The method for calculating standard errors for the MEPS-IC was changed effective with the 2014 tables. Details can be found under Reliability of Estimates
