Data Provided By

Definitions: Number and percent without health insurance for children under 19-years-old, for adults ages 18-64-years-old, and for the total population under 65-years-old.

Data Source: U. S. Census Bureau's Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAIHE) - 2008 through 2016.

Beginning in 2008, the SAHIE began using model-based enhancements of the American Community Survey (ACS) estimates, created by integrating additional information from administrative records, postcensal population estimates, and decennial census data to produce estimates that are more reliable. The SAHIE estimates are available annually at the state and county level.

Rather than reporting data for the population under age 18, the under age 19 group is included in the survey since it is congruent with the age cohort used to determine CHIP eligibility. The age 18-64 cohort is intended to approximate the working age population.
