NOTES: SE is standard error. Data are for the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Based on persons responding yes to the question, “During the past 12 months was there any time when person needed medical care but did not get it because person couldn’t afford it?” or “During the past 12 months have you delayed seeking medical care or has medical care been delayed because of worry about cost?” Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Asian race includes persons of both Hispanic and non-Hispanic origin. Percent of poverty level is based on family income and family size and composition using U.S. Census Bureau poverty thresholds. Missing family income data were imputed for 2000 and beyond. See Appendix II, Family income; Hispanic origin; Poverty; Race; Table VI. Also see Table 79.
