Note: These figures have been revised--children covered by Indian Health Services and no other form of health insurance are considered uninsured. See also P60-202, Health Insurance Coverage: 1997, p. 7 (Technical Note). The above estimates of uninsured children match those printed in the Federal Register, vol. 64 no. 25, February 8, 1999, pp. 6106-6107. Respondents were first asked about Indian Health Services coverage for 1994 data (March 1995 CPS).

* Average of the three years' percentages: not average 'Number' divided by average Total Children. Results may differ slightly based on the method used.
