had two components: (a) a random-digit dialed telephone survey of households with telephones, and (b) an area sample for households without telephones (Judkins et al.
It is important to note that the NSAF
does not collect sufficient information to determine whether children who are not citizens are eligible for Medicaid and CHIP.
The devolution of welfare programs from the Federal to the State level was an integral part of welfare reform, consequently the NSAF
was designed to provide estimates that are representative at the State level for 13 "focal States".
The second round of NSAF
is conducted by the Urban Institute between February and October 1999.
The sample was obtained from women who were primary NSAF
Several questions of this type were asked in the NSAF
in reference to the twelve months prior to the survey.

Jointly conducted by the Urban Institute and Child Trends, the NSAF
is a cross-sectional study that is nationally representative of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of children and adults who are less than 65 years old (Safir, Scheuren, & Wang, 2000).
We combine data from the Focal Child and Adult Pair modules of the 1999 and 2002 waves of the NSAF
Findings from the 1999 NSAF
suggest that, for low-income children, having an uninsured parent reduces the probability of having any medical provider visit during the year by 6.
These rates ranged from 21 percent to 35 percent, and are similar to the 29 percent rate reported in the NSAF
study (Loprest, 1999).
