In this webinar, SHADAC Senior Research Fellow Joanna Turner provides a virtual tour of the new SHADAC Data Center. The redesigned Data Center offers improved functionality and broader appeal through an expanded range of topics, data sources, and visualization options.
As always, Data Center users can study health insurance coverage using the most current coverage estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS), the Current Population Survey (CPS), and the SHADAC-Enhanced CPS. However, the Data Center now offers the following as well:
Characteristics of the uninsured (e.g., age, sex, family type, income)
Access to care
Access to and cost of employer-sponsored insurance
New Data Sources
Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
Medical Expenditure Panel Survey - Insurance Component (MEPS-IC)
The State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a part of the Health Policy and Management Division of the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota.
