a. Estimates are age adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard population. Age data and health insurance data for age 65 and over are unadjusted.

b. A small number of people who were covered by both public and private health insurance plans were included in the "private" category only.

c. Negative/poor refers to family incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low, the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over. Missing values for family income were imputed using multiple imputation methodology. A small number of people were excluded because their family income could not be imputed.
