State Survey Resources and Technical Assistance

SHADAC maintains and produces a variety of resources to help analysts conduct research and understand the results. This technical assistance agenda aims to:

  • Facilitate the sharing of information and expertise among states and provide opportunities for state analysts to interact with federal survey research and design experts.
  • Help policy-makers understand the unique characteristics of the uninsured and conceptualize state programs and interventions that will increase access to care.
  • Provide assistance to states using any of SHADAC’s survey tools (the State Reform Survey Item Matrix (SRSIM); the Marketplace Enrollee Survey Item Matrix (MESIM); and the Coordinated State Coverage Survey (CSCS).
  • Provide data collection technical assistance to states seeking information on their uninsured populations
