Report Number P70-29
Kathleen Short

This report uses data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to examine issues related to health insurance coverage. The report has two major points of focus. First, It presents quarterly estimates of the extent and type of health insurance coverage (and the characteristics of those who lacked insurance) from the first quarter of 1989 to the fourth quarter of 1990. The souces of this information are interviews from the 1988 and 1990 SIPP panels. Interviews for the 1988 panel were conducted between February 1988 and January 1990. Data presented here from the 1990 panel were obtained between February 1990 and May 1991.
