This report presents information about the health insurance coverage of children in Iowa using data derived from the 2005 Iowa Child and Family Household Health Survey (IHHS). Results for uninsured children were compared to those for publicly (Medicaid and hawk-i) and privately insured children. The State of Iowa has in recent years placed a special emphasis on early care, education, and health for the youngest Iowans. The purpose of this report is to provide information about Iowa’s children ages 0-5 (i.e., prekindergarten). The data provided is based on the core questions in the survey as well as questions specific to issues of early childhood, including child care and family activities.
