INSHHNO reports the number of household members covered by health insurance.

The information in INSHHNO 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.


INSHHNO has no comparability problems.
