For persons aged 16 and older who are in scope and have a current main job, EMPHINSFLGRD flags cases that were edited for consistency between the employment and health insurance coverage sections of the interview. Persons who indicated they held health insurance through their current main job in the employment section, but later denied coverage in the health insurance section have edited values in the employment section so responses are consistent between the two sections. EMPHINSFLGRD can be used to identify individuals whose employment section health insurance information was edited.
