The 2005 Kaiser Low-Income Coverage and Access Survey: Survey Methods and Baseline Tables

This document details the methods used to develop the 2005 Kaiser Low-Income Coverage and Access Survey dataset and presents baseline tables on population demographics, overall and by health coverage. The Kaiser Family Foundation conducted this national survey to examine health insurance coverage, access to care and the impact of health costs on the low-income population. The majority of the uninsured are low-income, and this survey of more than 5,000 low-income adults provides detailed data that can be used to inform the ongoing debate on reforming the U.S. health care system.
