We ask questions about health insurance coverage to create statistics about the percentage of people covered by health insurance and the sources of health insurance.

Local, state, tribal, and federal agencies use health insurance coverage data to plan government programs, determine eligibility criteria, and encourage eligible people to participate in health insurance programs.

Your privacy concerns

We use your confidential survey answers to create statistics like those in the results below and in the full tables that contain all the data—no one is able to figure out your survey answers from the statistics we produce. The Census Bureau is legally bound to strict confidentiality requirements. Individual records are not shared with anyone, including federal agencies and law enforcement entities. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents' answers with anyone—not the IRS, not the FBI, not the CIA, and not with any other government agency.
