The Medi-Cal 2011-12 Population: A Series of Reports Based on DHCS Administrative Data and Information from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS)

The Research and Analytic Studies Division (RASD) has developed a series of statistical briefs describing the socio-demographic, regional, and health characteristics of California's adult and child populations using 2011-12 data. RASD focused on the Medi-Cal population, comparing and contrasting Medi-Cal enrollees, where sample size allowed, with individuals who were privately insured, individuals without any insurance, and those enrolled in California's Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) - Healthy Families. RASD combined Department of Health Services' (DHCS) administrative data and data derived from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). These statistics provide stakeholders with a highly textured point-in-time depiction of the Medi-Cal population, which may serve as a comparative baseline as Affordable Care Act (ACA) transition data becomes available. 

Separate briefs were created for children between the ages of 0 to 11 and adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17. RASD created separate statistical briefs because CHIS interviews of children were conducted by interviewing the parents or guardians of the child, whereas adolescents' interviews were conducted by interviewing the adolescents themselves. In addition, some questions were specifically designed for children under the ages of 12 and others were designed for adolescents only.

 Children 0-11

This statistical brief focuses on children between the ages of 0 and 11 and was created as part of a series of statistical briefs designed to present socio-demographic and health related data for California's adult and children populations.

Evaluating the effects of the transition and the full implementation of the ACA on California's Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, requires researchers and stakeholders to possess a clear understanding of the Medi-Cal population before the expansion. To address this informational need, RASD has created the following report on the socio-demographic, regional, and health characteristics of the 2011-12 nonelderly adult Medi-Cal population. These statistics provide stakeholders with a highly textured point-in-time depiction of the Medi-Cal population, which may serve as a comparative baseline as ACA transition data becomes available.
