Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

For all persons, PEGMM is a set of constructed monthly summary health insurance variables indicating whether they have private employer or union group insurance in a given calendar month. By adding PEGMM to your data cart, you are in effect adding 12 monthly health insurance coverage variables (PEGJA-PEGDE), one variable for each calendar month.

Coverage through an employer or union was initially asked about in the Employment section of the interview and later confirmed in the Health Insurance section. Respondents also had an opportunity to report employer and union group insurance for the first time in the Health Insurance section of the interview, but this insurance was not linked to a specific job.
