Data Provided By

Definitions: The number and percent of children enrolled in Medicaid (also referred to as Medical Assistance, or MA) and CHIP.

Medicaid provides coverage to children in families with limited income or where the child has a disabling condition.  CHIP provides coverage to children not eligible for Medicaid income levels who are otherwise uninsured.

The year represents when PPC published the report.

Data Source: PPC's report, along with source documentation, can be found at

Footnotes: The totals are greater than the sum of 0-5 and 6-18 subcategories due to report timing differences and the exclusion of 19 year-olds in the CHIP data.
