This DataWatch reports on the key findings from the 1993 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Family Health Insurance Survey, which interviewed more than 27,000 families in ten states. There is considerable variation among the states in insurance coverage, health status, and access to care of both adults and children. Moreover, states with higher percentages of uninsured residents also have populations with lower health status and more access problems. This clustering of problems in certain states may make health care reform even more challenging for their elected officials to accomplish.
