Snapshots of America's Families II: 1999 Results

The first results from the 1999 National Survey of America's Families (NSAF), examines changes in family economic well-being; health insurance, access, and health status; and family environment and child well-being. Findings by race and ethnicity are also provided. The survey covers more than 42,000 households; includes state specific data for 13 states (AL, CA, CO, FL, MA, MI, MN, MS, NJ, NY, TX, WA, and WI); and oversamples low-income families (families with incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty line).
