Laura P. Shone, Paula M. Lantz, Andrew W. Dick, Michael E. Chernew, and Peter G. Szilagyi. Article originally published in HSR Volume 43, Number 3, Part 2, February 2008.

In Table 3 of this published article, point estimates in the “bivariate” column were omitted for six separate items and only the SEs appeared. The table is reprinted in the following pages with the missing values in bold type. The publisher apologizes for this error.

    Model adjusted for all characteristics shown in the table.

  • Results weighted to be representative statewide for the population of white, black, and Hispanic children newly enrolled in SCHIP between 11/1/00 and 3/31/01. Three-quarters of new enrollees were members of racial/ethnic minority groups (21% non-Hispanic white, 24% non-Hispanic black, 36% Hispanic, and 19% other).

  • >95% of respondents were the child's biological mother.

    § Variable and response terms are worded as asked using nationally validated General Health Subscale of the Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ) (Landgraf, Abaetz and Ware, 1996).
