INSHHALLMEM indicates whether all household members or only some household members were covered by health insurance. Members of households with no members covered by health insurance are coded NIU (not in universe) in this variable.

The information in INSHHALLMEM is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


INSHHALLMEM has no comparability problems.
