† Estimate does not have sufficient sample size or estimate has a relative standard error greater than 50% and is not shown.

* Estimate has complement that has a relative standard error of greater than 30%. The complement does not meet the standards of reliability or precision and should be used with caution.

1Refers to any comprehensive private insurance plan (including health maintenance and preferred provider organizations). These plans include those obtained through an employer, purchased directly, or purchased through local or community programs. Private coverage excludes plans that pay for only one type of service, such as accidents or dental care. A small number of persons were covered by both private and Medicaid/CHIP and were included in both categories.

2Refers to private insurance originally obtained through a present or former employer, union, or professional association.

3Includes other state-sponsored plans. A small number of persons were covered by both private and Medicaid or CHIP and were included in both categories.

4Includes persons without private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, state-sponsored or other government-sponsored health plan, or military plan. A person was also defined as uninsured if he or she had only Indian Health Service coverage or had only a private plan that paid for one type of service, such as accidents or dental care.

NOTES: Usual place of medical care is based on a survey question that asked, "Is there a place that you usually go to when you are sick or need advice about your health?" and if there was at least one such place, a follow-up question was asked: "What kind of place [is it/do you go to most often]—a clinic, a doctor's office, an emergency room, or some other place?" The choices for this second question were: "clinic or health center," "doctor's office or HMO," "hospital emergency room," "hospital outpatient department," "some other place," or "doesn't go to one place most often." Persons who indicated a hospital emergency room as their usual place of medical care were excluded.

1Poverty status and percentage of poverty level are based on reported and imputed family income, family size, and the number of children in the family, and, for families with two or fewer adults, on the age of the adults in the family. Family income was imputed for approximately 20% persons using National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) imputed income files. Note that NHIS asks respondents about their personal earnings and family income for the previous calendar year. The poverty ratios in the 2010 and 2011 NHIS data files were calculated using the U.S. Census Bureau's poverty thresholds about 2009 and 2010 income.

2FPL is federal poverty level.

NOTES: Usual place of medical care is based on a survey question that asked, "Is there a place that you usually go to when you are sick or need advice about your health?" and if there was at least one such place, a follow-up question was asked: "What kind of place [is it/do you go to most often]—a clinic, a doctor's office, an emergency room, or some other place?"
