National Survey of Low-Income Parents

The 2011 Topline Report: Key Findings from a National Survey of Low-Income Parents  examined low-income parents' experiences around their children's health insurance coverage, as well as awareness of and attitudes toward Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This survey has helped inform policy, outreach, and education for the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign, as well as other Medicaid and CHIP enrollment efforts.
