Similarly, Lo Sasso and Buchmueller (2004) combine Medicaid and CHIP when analyzing the CPS, and the State Health Access Data Assistance Center
(SHADAC) counsels this as a general strategy (SHADAC, 2008).
The largest group of phone users are those with both a cell phone and landline, and because such people have a higher probability of being included in a study, "dealing with the overlap can be tricky," said Michael Davern, PhD, research director at the State Health Access Data Assistance Center
at the University of Minnesota.
The percentage of uninsured Americans who are happy with their health ranges from 72% in Texas to 90% in Hawaii, according to a statistical portrait of the uninsured compiled by researchers at the State Health Access Data Assistance Center
at the University of Minnesota.
The false-negative rate in the 2005 Current Population Survey (CPS) was 42.9 percent (University of Minnesota's State Health Access Data Assistance Center

Brett Fried and his colleagues at the University of Minnesota, State Health Access Data Assistance Center
(SHADAC) in their paper, "Implementing Federal Health Reform in the States: Who Is Included and Excluded and What Are Their Characteristics?" also leverage the unique data in two federal surveys, the American Community Survey (ACS) and the Survey of Income Program Participation (SIPP).

2011), making it difficult to focus on narrow population groups, while state-specific surveys, which may offer a larger state sample size, cannot support the stronger designs needed to disentangle the effects of health reform from other factors.
Many survey records lack identifiers: 26.0, 47.7, and 39.1 percent of the CPS, NHIS, and MEPS records, respectively (State Health Access Data Assistance Center
