For all persons with private health insurance, this variable indicates if the person has a plan that pays for any costs of dental care under Plan 1. Information was collected on up to four plans, but for 2004 forward, only data for Plans 1 and 2 are publicly available.


Persons with three or more plans have a "yes" response to the HIPRIVGT2 variable (for 2004 forward). Analysis by IPUMS NHIS staff indicates that a very small number of persons (around 0.1 percent per year on average for 2004 to 2009) had three or more private insurance plans. Additional information for the third and fourth plans for a person is available through a Data Research Center. See the 2004 Survey Description document available on the NCHS website for more information.


There are no comparability issues.
