American Community Survey Data

This Principal Investigator is the Director of the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC). The goal of this project is to produce estimates of health insurance from the American Community Survey. The estimates are distributed to users through the website tool on the SHADAC website. Estimates are used to assess the health insurance status of the population by residence and demographic characteristics. The 2008 data are the first to include health insurance status in the survey. This represents an opportunity to understand health insurance in the context of reform efforts.
