New chartbook profiles racial/ethnic differences

A new chartbook from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) presents detailed charts and other information on health insurance coverage and usual source of care during 2002 for Hispanic, non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black, and other single/multiple race non-Hispanic Americans.

The chartbook also compares Hispanic subgroups—Puerto Rican, Cuban, Mexican, or "Other Hispanic" (a term that includes South Americans, Central Americans, and Dominicans).
