Working Paper: Sources of Vulnerability: A Critical Review of the Literature on Racial/Ethnic Minorities, Immigrants, and Persons with Chronic Mental Illness (PDF) ; October 2002

This critical synthesis provides background material for a special ERIU research initiative on vulnerable populations. (For the papers that resulted from that undertaking, see /events/papers_2004vpops.html) It develops a conceptual framework to use when studying the relationship between vulnerability and health insurance coverage and summarizes existing research on the factors influencing coverage outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, and people with chronic mental illness. Particular attention is placed on literature that explores the dynamic relationship between labor markets and coverage. The review includes a summary of data sources that can be employed to study coverage dynamics for these vulnerable populations.
