SHADAC’s New State Survey Research Resource PageDecember 10, 2021:
Early this fall, SHADAC updated its State Survey Research Activity web page using an interactive infographic (preview to the right) to allow users to easily identify the type and frequency of state-level health insurance surveys (household and/or employer) available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The surveys accessible through the page were collected from 2010 through 2021, with surveys that predate 2010 housed in SHADAC’s archives and available upon request.
State Surveys in Summary
In all, 27 states field and report ongoing household and/or employer surveys, and 6 of these states have conducted surveys nearly every year since 2010. Ohio has the longest continuous record with 11 iterations of its employer survey fielded since 2010.
The updated State Survey web page uses an infographic to enable quick navigation to PDF-format state survey materials, including survey questionnaires, findings, methodology reports, technical documentation, and summary briefs. The update includes surveys that are accessible online and free of charge. SHADAC will be adding additional surveys, including the 2021 Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey and 2021 Oregon Health Insurance Survey (both of which are currently underway), as they become available.
State Health Insurance Surveys Highlights
Since 2019, twenty states have conducted household or employer surveys. Eleven of these states have conducted their surveys multiple times over the course of at least a fifteen-year period, and even longer in some cases. The long-standing surveys conducted by states including California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming are highlighted below.
