Other Survey Resources

The American Community Survey (ACS) is an annual national survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2009, the ACS started collecting data on health insurance coverage. Data is released annually on a set schedule, beginning in mid-September. The American Fact Finder tables are available here: https://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/index.xhtml

Past Data Reports

The Oregon Health Insurance Survey (OHIS) is fielded in odd-numbered years. Data from previous OHIS studies are included below. In 2014, a special study called the Oregon Health Insurance Recontact Study was completed. In the Recontact Study, Oregonians who were uninsured in the 2013 OHIS were surveyed again to estimate how many Oregonians remained uninsured after implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
