9 Analysis of the Urban Institute Health Policy Center’s ACS Medicaid/CHIP Eligibility Simulation Model developed by Victoria Lynch under a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation based on American Community Survey (ACS) data from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS) from 2008 to 2012. For more information on data and methods, see http://www.urban.org/uploadedpdf/412901-%20Medicaid-CHIP-Participation-Rates-Among-Children-An-Update.pdf. Participation rates are the ratio of eligible children enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP to that number plus eligible children not enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP. The counts children with both Medicaid/CHIP and employer-provided/union-based, military, or private nongroup coverage and those with Medicaid/CHIP coverage without a known eligibility pathway.
