Codes and Frequencies
GROUPOUT indicates whether, during the previous calendar year, the respondent's own policy for employment-based health insurance provided coverage for someone outside the household. The interviewer asked whether, at any time during the previous calendar year, anyone in the household was covered by employment-based health insurance, and distinguished between policyholders and dependents covered by the plan through follow-up questions. One such question, the basis for GROUPOUT, inquired whether the respondent's employment-based policy covered anyone outside the household.
Persons who were policyholders for such insurance are identified in the GROUPOWN variable. GROUPDEP identifies household members covered as dependents by the employment-based insurance policy of someone in the household. Up to two household members who were policyholders for employment-based health insurance are identified in the GRPWHO1 and GRPWHO2 variables. GROUPTYP indicates whether the policyholder's employment-based health insurance covered the respondent only or also covered family members.
