1 Includes CHAMPUS (Comprehensive Health and Medical Plan for Uniformed Services)/Tricare, Veterans, and military health care, but for VA care only starting 2013.
2 Implementation of 1990 census population controls.
3 Data collection method changed from paper and pencil to computer-assisted interviewing.
4 Health insurance questions were redesigned.  Increases in estimates of employment-based and military health care coverage
may be partially due to questionnaire changes.  Overall coverage estimates were not affected.
5 Beginning with the March 1998 CPS, people with no coverage other than access to Indian Health Service are no longer considered
covered by health insurance; instead, they are considered to be uninsured.  The effect of this change on the overall estimates of health
insurance coverage is negligible; however, the decrease in the number of people covered by Medicaid may be partially due to this change.
6 Estimates reflect the results of follow-up verification questions and of 2000 based population controls.
7 Implementation of a 28,000 household sample expansion.
8 These estimates from the 2005 ASEC were revised based on improvements to the algorithm that assigned coverage to dependents,          
 and there was an adjustment to the weights.     
9 Starting from 2013, the data source is the American Community Survey (ACS), not Current Population Survey (CPS).
