The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation is a non-profit, private operating foundation focusing on the major health care issues facing the nation. The Foundation is an independent voice and source of facts and analysis for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the general public. The Foundation is not associated with Kaiser Permanente or Kaiser Industries.

Information about Health Coverage and Uninsured Topics 
The data are based on an analysis of the Census Bureaus March 2007 and 2008 Current Population Surveys (CPS; Annual Social and Economic Supplements) and are restricted to the civilian (not active duty military) population. The state data represent 2-year averages.

The grouping used for analysis is the health insurance unit (HIU), which groups individuals according to their insurance eligibility, rather than by relatedness or household. A HIU includes members of a nuclear family who can be covered under one health insurance policy. A single household may contain multiple HIUs, and the income and work status of each HIU member is assigned to the HIU to which they belong. This method of analysis has the effect of increasing the number of people who are low-income. Using the HIU as the basis of analysis is important when trying to estimate the number of people who might be affected by health insurance policy changes.
