Modeling Health Insurance Coverage Estimates for Minnesota Counties
Joanna Turner presented "Modeling Health Insurance Coverage Estimates for Minnesota Counties," at the Joint Statistical Meetings of the American Statistical Association, August 1, 2011 in Miami Beach, FL.
In this paper SHADAC created a model to predict lack of insurance coverage for Minnesota counties using multiple data sources. While the results are exploratory in nature, the methodology allows for additional applications using the Bayesian framework developed.
This research was based on work conducted for the Minnesota Department of Health, Health Economics Program.
