Description
  • Abstract

    In January 2013, the Urban Institute launched the Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS), a quarterly survey of the nonelderly population, to explore the value of cutting-edge, Internet-based survey methods to monitor the Affordable Care Act (ACA) before data from federal government surveys are available. Topics covered by the eight round of the survey (fourth quarter 2014) include self-reported health status, type of and satisfaction with health insurance coverage, access to and use of health care, out-of-pocket health care costs, health care affordability, and awareness of various provisions of the ACA. Additional information collected by the survey includes age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, education, race, Hispanic origin, United States citizenship, housing type, home ownership, internet access, income, receipt of government benefits, employment status, and employer size.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
  • Methods

    Response Rates: The HRMS response rate is roughly five percent each quarter.

Sampled Universe
Household population aged 18-64.
Sampling
Each quarter, a stratified random sample of adults ages 18-64 is drawn from the KnowledgePanel, a probability-based, nationally represented Internet panel maintained by GfK Custom Research. The approximately 55,000 adults in the panel include households with and without Internet access. Panel members are recruited from an address-based sample frame derived from the United States Postal Service Delivery Sequence File, which covers 97 percent of United States households. The HRMS sample includes a random sample of approximately 7,500 nonelderly adults per quarter, including oversamples of adults with family incomes at or below 138 percent of the federal poverty line and adults from selected state groups based on (1) the potential for gains in insurance coverage in the state under the ACA as estimated by the Urban Institute's microsimulation model and (2) states of specific interest to the HRMS funders. Additional funders have supported oversamples of adults from individual states or subgroups of interest including children. However, ICPSR received data only for adults in the general national sample and the income and state group oversamples.
