Comparing the characteristics of the 2008 OFHS to U.S.
The first step in the analysis uses a subset of the OFHS that is representative of all non-institutionalized adults aged 19-64 in Ohio who have been enrolled in Medicaid for less than twelve months.
The OFHS uses a battery of questions to identify private-public substitution.
By including the substitution questions in a larger household survey, the OFHS allows an examination of who substitutes public for private coverage.
Table 2 uses the 2004 and 2008 OFHS to summarize adult Medicaid enrollment in Ohio and the analysis sample.
Another 18% met at least one of the four disability screens in the OFHS. Since survey data lack spend-down and other Medicaid eligibility criteria, the source of eligibility for the remaining 25% of Medicaid adults in 2008 cannot be determined.
The OFHS only asks the respondent if they are eligible for ESI through their employer, but it does not ask if they could obtain ESI through a spouse or previous employer.
With the repeated surveys of the OFHS, results indicate that fewer enrollees had private coverage before enrolling in Medicaid in 2008 than in 2004.
(5.) Essentially, the criterion used for deriving the OFH
makes B/N select optimal k in the presence of all three shocks simultaneously in stochastic simulations, with the importance of each shock depending both on how strongly it enters the model's structural equations and on the shock variance-covariance matrix.
