Insurance - Uninsured Children
The Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE) program was created to develop model-based estimates of health insurance coverage for counties and states. It is currently the only dataset providing complete health-insurance coverage estimates. The models predict state and county level insurance estimates for total populations, as well as population groups defined by age, sex, race and income.
The SAHIE program models health insurance coverage by combining survey data with population estimates and administrative records. SAHIE estimates are a product of the US Census Bureau with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The SAHIE health insurance models use data from the following sources:
- American Community Survey
- Internal Revenue Service: Federal Tax Returns
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): Participation Records
- County Business Patterns
- Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP): Participation Records
- US Census 2010
Counts of the number of persons without medical insurance are modelled for the Small Area Income and Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE) datasets by the Census Bureau using both survey and census data. In this reporting platform, indicator percentages are summarized from the SAHIE estimates based on the following formula:
Race and Ethnicity
Race and ethnicity (Hispanic origin) are collected as two separate categories based on methods established by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in 1997. Data reported from the US Census Bureau's Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE) program is available by combined race and ethnicity, and is reported only for state and national data summaries. County level statistics by race and ethnicity are not provided for this indicator from the data source. Detailed race/ethnicity data may be available from a local source.
