Abstract

This report is the fifth in a series presenting the results from the 2005 Iowa Child andFamily Household Health Survey (IHHS). The 2005 IHHS is the second comprehensive statewide survey with the primary goals of: 1) assessing the health and well-being of children and families in Iowa, 2) assessing a set of early childhood issues, 3) evaluating the health insurance coverage of children in Iowa, and 4) assessing the health and well-being of racial and ethnic minority children in Iowa. The 2005 IHHS was a collaboration between the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), the University of Iowa Public Policy Center (PPC), and the Child Health Specialty Clinics (CHSC). Funding was provided primarily by the IDPH, with additional funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
