With the MEPS-HC Data Tools, users can explore trends and cross-sectional bar charts for nationally representative estimates of household medical utilization and expenditures, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, health insurance coverage, accessibility and quality of care, treated medical conditions, and prescribed medicine purchases.
The new MEPS-HC Variable Explorer Tool, provides a quick and easy way to search across MEPS Public Use Files for variables and files needed for users' research projects.
With the MEPS-IC Data Tools, users can interactively explore maps, trends, and cross-sectional bar charts for topics related to national and state-level employer-based health insurance for employer characteristics/offerings; employee take-up; premiums; contributions; and cost-sharing.
Private-Sector tables provide estimates by firm size, industry group, census region, and other characteristics at the national, state, and metropolitan-area levels. Public-Sector tables provide estimates by state and local government type, government size, and census division. Civilian-Sector estimates incorporate both the private and state and local government sectors.
The interactive data can also be downloaded as Complete Table Series PDFs.
Please note, in preparation for improvements in the data collection process, 2007 data for the Insurance Component was not collected.
