9997 = Top Code.


EMCONTRB indicates the amount of employer's contribution for health insurance. Amounts are reported in dollars.

Amounts for EMCONTRB are expressed in dollars of the given year, rather than in constant dollars adjusted for inflation. Users can adjust for inflation using Consumer Price Index adjustment factors.


User Note: For a set of variables that addresses many of the comparability issues in the CPS health insurance measures, see the summary health insurance variables created by the University of Minnesota's State Health Access Data Assistance Center.
