Change in Percentage of Families Offered Coverage at Work, 1998-2009
About 150 million people receive health insurance through an employer, making employer-sponsored coverage the most popular form of health insurance coverage for the nonelderly in the United States. This report examines the change in the percentage of families offered coverage at work and how the offer of health insurance differs depending on the type of family and the family’s income. The analysis is based on data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), an annual survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau for the National Center for Health Statistics.
