Medicaid Undercount in the American Community Survey
Presentation by SHADAC Senior Research Fellow Joanna Turner at the 2013 Research Conference of the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology (FCSM), on November 4, 2013, in Washington, DC.
SHADAC Senior Research Fellow Joanna Turner presented on November 4, 2013, at the annual research conference of the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology, where she discussed findings from an analysis of the Medicaid undercount in the American Community Survey (ACS). The analysis was the result of a collaborative effort between SHADAC and the U.S. Census Bureau to extend previous Medicaid undercount research to the ACS by describing the concordance of Medicaid reporting in the ACS and enrollment data in administrative records from the Medicaid Statistical Information System (MSIS). The undercount in the ACS, at roughly 22.9 percent, appears in line with other federal surveys.
