Q & A with Pamela Farley Short, Ph.D. (HTML) ; October 2002

The picture of who is uninsured that emerges from cross-sectional analyses is different from the image that develops looking at who is insured and uninsured over a period of time. This paper presents the advantages of longitudinal data and the implications for researchers and policymakers alike of using data that give information about the duration of spells without health insurance. This paper is one of six papers commissioned at the outset of ERIU to provide a critical synthesis of the existing literature on who does not have health insurance, why they do not have health insurance, and what difference health insurance makes. The papers appeared in final form in Health Policy and the Uninsured published by Urban Institute Press in 2004.
