Health Insurance, Health Care Use, and Health Status in Los Angeles County
Marianne P. Bitler and Weiyi Shi

December 2006

In this report, Marianne Bitler and Weiyi Shi look at how adults and children in Los Angeles are faring in the health arena, paying attention to differences across racial and ethnic groups. The authors focus particularly on Hispanics, a large and growing part of the state’s population. They also analyze outcomes according to nativity and immigration status. The ability to differentiate between documented and undocumented immigrants is relatively rare, and is possible because of the unique, high-quality, individual-level data included in the Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Survey (LAFANS), the primary data source for the report.
