The Southern Institute on Children and Families: Uninsured Children in the South


Second Report

The Southern Institute on Children and Families released the first report on Uninsured Children in the South in November 1992. The report provided estimates of uninsured children by state with age and income breakouts related to Medicaid. This is the second report on Uninsured Children in the South. It provides estimates of uninsured children in each southern state from two perspectives: number of uninsured children in 1993 with percent of uninsured children by age and income ranges, and decline or increase in the number of uninsured children between 1989 and 1993. Included in this report are fact sheets for the southern region as a whole and for the 17 southern states and the District of Columbia. The fact sheets contain state specific elegibility levels for Medicaid children. The source of the estimates of uninsured children is the Current Population Survey (CPS). The data were prepared by The Urban Institute using data specifications submitted by the Southern Institute on Children and Families for 1989 and 1993.
