PMVCAID is a 5-digit numeric variable.
PMVCAID indicates the respondent's "person market value" of Medicaid. The person market value translates to the average government cost for each respondent.
Amounts for PMVCAID 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.
Apart from the effects of inflation, PMVCAID is largely comparable over time.
