State Health Compare
State Health Compare allows users to generate customized reports for a range of state-level health estimates, drawing on multiple data sources.
State Health Compare is a web-based data tabulator that offers state-level estimates related to health insurance coverage, access, and cost. It leverages a wide variety of data sets, includes time trends, estimates for sub populations (e.g., age, race, income), and statistical testing to highlight time-trend analysis and sub-population analysis. Data sets leveraged for these projects include: ACS, CPS, BRFSS, MEPS-IC, NHIS, HCUP, and NIS, among others. All of the estimates and statistical testing for these online tabulators are based on SHADAC analysis.
