7/ Beginning with the March 1998 CPS, people with no coverage other than                  
access to Indian Health Service are no longer considered covered by health                
insurance; instead, they are considered to be uninsured.  The effect of                   
this change on the overall estimates of health insurance coverage is                      
negligible; however, the decrease in the number of people covered by                      
Medicaid may be partically due to this change.                                            
                                                                                          
8/ Estimates reflect the results of follow-up verification questions and of               
Census 2000 based population controls.                                                   
                                                                                          
9/ Implementation of a 28,000 household sample expansion.                                 
                                                                                          
10/ The 2003 CPS asked respondents to choose one or more races.  White alone refers       
to people who reported White and did not report any other race category.  The use of      
this single-race population does not imply that it is the preferred method of presenting  
or analyzing data. The Census Bureau uses a variety of approaches.  Information on        
people who reported more than one race, such as “White and American Indian and            
Alaska Native” or “Asian and Black or African American,” is available from Census         
2000 through American FactFinder.  About 2.6 percent of people reported more than         
one race in 2000.                                                                         
                                                                                          
11/ The 2001 CPS and earlier years asked respondents to report only one race.             
The reference groups for these years are: White, White not Hispanic, Black, and           
Asian and Pacific Islander.                                                               
                                                                                          
12/ Black alone refers to people who reported Black or African American and did not       
report any other race category.                                                           
                                                                                          
13/ Asian alone refers to people who reported Asian and did not report any other race     
category.                                                                                 
                                                                                          
14/ Because Hispanics may be of any race, data in this report for Hispanics overlap       
with data for racial groups.  Being Hispanic was reported by 11.8 percent of White        
householders who reported only one race; 2.7 percent of Black householders who reported   
only one race; 26.5 percent of American Indian and Alaska Native householders             
who reported only one race; and 10.0 percent of Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific         
Islander householders who reported only one race.  Data users should exercise caution     
when interpreting aggregate results for the Hispanic population because this              
population consists of many distinct groups that differ in socio-economic                 
characteristics, culture, and recency of immigration.  Data were first collected for      
Hispanics in 1972.                                                                        
                                                                                          
15/ These estimates from the 2005 ASEC were revised based on improvements to the          
algorithm that assigned coverage to dependents, and there was an adjustment to the        
weights.
