Health Insurance Coverage in Texas Counties

Health Insurance Coverage in Texas Counties

To help Texans better understand issues surrounding access to health care services, Texas Cancer Information is now providing easy access to estimates for the number of insured and uninsured in Texas and in each Texas county.

The health insurance estimates are from the U.S. Census Bureau, Small Area Health Insurance Estimates. The U.S. Census Bureau's Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE) program develop model-based estimates of health insurance coverage for counties and states, building upon the work of the U.S. Census Bureau's Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE) program. The program is partially funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP).

The SAHIE program models health insurance coverage by combining survey data with population estimates and administrative records and are based on data from the following sources:

2006 and 2007 data for Texas counties include estimates of people with and without health insurance by:
2006 and 2007 data for the state of Texas include estimates of people with and without health insurance by:
