These differences were also significant for children of FTYR low-income families compared to nonpoor children (p = .0001).
Similar differentials were found among the FTYR population compared to the reference groups (p = .0001).
These differences persisted for children of FTYR working families compared with the two reference groups.
Among children of FTYR low-income workers 23.7 percent had no doctor visits, a rate significantly worse than for the two reference groups (p = .001).
Children of FTYR low-income families, however, had fewer visits than both reference groups.
Among the FTYR subpopulation, similar differences by insurance status prevailed.
Similar patterns were found in comparing low-income children of FTYR workers and those of nonworkers.
Similar patterns were generally observed when children of FTYR low-income workers were compared to those in nonpoor families, with the exception that children of FTYR low-income workers had fewer physician visits, both before and after adjustment for demographic factors, health status, and insurance coverage.
Furthermore, the lack of continuous coverage among the insured is a bigger problem for low-income children whose parents work, especially for those not employed full-time year round (FTYR).
Having a FTYR working parent does not improve insurance coverage rates for children of working families.
