This study examined the distribution of health-care insurance coverage by race/ethnicity using data on gender, age, income, and education to identify segments of the population with and without health-care insurance in 1993.
Among all groups, whites were more likely to have health-care insurance coverage than blacks or Hispanics.
The data also were cross-classified by type of insurance coverage, including private, Medicare, and Medicaid.
Whites were more likely than minorities to have private coverage, whereas minorities, socially disadvantaged persons in all groups, and the elderly were more likely to be covered by Medicare and Medicaid.
