Household Component summary tables
The MEPS Household Component summary tables provide frequently used summary estimates for the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population on household medical utilization and expenditures, demographic and socio-economic characteristics, health insurance coverage, access to care and satisfaction with care, medical conditions, and prescribed medicine purchases. Most tables can be stratified by demographic or socio-economic characteristics. Plots from selected data can also be generated, and R and SAS code for calculating selected estimates is available. See Sample Design and Data Collection Process for details on the collection of individual data items (e.g., health insurance status, age). The estimates provided in the tables are based on data available in standardized public use data files. Pages have been optimized for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
