This report presents tabulations of the interrelationship between health insurance coverage for children and parental employment, using data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation, a longitudinal survey conducted by the Census Bureau. The data cover the period October 1989 to April 1994. The tabulations show that (1) most uninsured children are in poor families where at least one parent works; and (2) few children in unemployed families have a family member recently employed in an insured job. Thus, the continuation program proposed by the Clinton administration would have only a small effect on children of unemployed parents.
