COLLAPSE

Definitions: Children under age 18 who were covered by health insurance at any point during the year, by health insurance type.
“Public only” also includes those covered by more than one public plan and no private coverage.  “Private – Individual only, Other” includes those covered by more than one private direct purchase plan and not covered under any public plan. Also included are those who have health insurance coverage through someone who does not live in the household. The figures shown here are 3-year averages of data.  On September 12, 2012 estimates for 1998 through 2010 were replaced with revised 2000 through 2010 data files from the Census Bureau.  In September 2011, the Census Bureau released revised figures on health insurance coverage from the 2000 to 2010 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplements (CPS ASEC), reflecting enhancements to the editing process, including the assignment of a family health plan to all individuals in the household and the addition of a new variable to the allocation matrix (for more on the revisions see: http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/hlthins/data/revhlth/usernote.html).  In September 2011, the Census Bureau released a new historical data series that incorporates the enhancements to the editing process.  A working paper (found at: http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/hlthins/data/revhlth/SHADAC.pdf) released at the same time describes the revisions made and applies it to all years available: data files from the 2000 to 2010 ASECs.
