Codes and Frequencies
GROUPTYP indicates whether group health insurance acquired through a current or past job or union covered only the policyholder or also covered dependents, during the previous calendar year. Policyholders of employment-based insurance are identified in the GROUPOWN variable. Persons who had coverage from such a plan as dependents of a policyholder are identified in the GROUPDEP variable. Whether a policyholder's employment-based health insurance provided coverage for someone outside the household is reported in GROUPOUT.
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.
