Description

This chart shows the trend in health care coverage status among NY residents from 2007 to 2010. Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) sample data were used to generate annual percentages of non-institutionalized adult (18+) NYS residents with/without health insurance coverage. Health care coverage percentages are provided for 2007 forward, and are available for a range of demographic groups (New York City/Rest of State; Sex; Race/Ethnicity; Age; Education; Income; Disability Status; Employment Status; Mental Health Status). BRFSS is a random digit dialing (RDD) phone survey of the health status and health behaviors of adult NYS residents. The sample covers between 6,000 and 9,000 completed interviews annually.

Notes
Notes
There were two significant changes to the BRFSS sampling methodology beginning with the 2011 survey: • The BRFSS sampling frame was expanded to include sampling of cell phones • The weighting methodology was changed from post-stratification to iterative raking Both changes were piloted and evaluated for three years prior to implementation in 2011, and were found to improve the representativeness of the BRFSS sample. However, these changes in the methodology were found to have a significant impact on rates calculated from BRFSS data. Consequently, BRFSS data prior to 2011 should not be directly compared to data from 2011 forward.
