Children can be identified by the age variables in the MEPS-HC, allowing most MEPS analyses to be performed for children. Starting in 2001, a Child Health and Preventive Care section was added to the survey. This section contains questions that had been in the 2000 Parent Administered Questionnaire, selected children's questions that had been asked in previous years, and additional child preventive care questions. In addition to the tables, query tool, and publications below, full-year consolidated data files
containing person-level children's health variables can be downloaded for analysis.
