  • All multivariate logistic regressions adjusted for the following covariates: survey year (2005, 2009), sample type (cell phone vs landline), child gender, child age, household income, annual household out-of-pocket expenses, household urbanicity, child’s insurance status, highest level of education in the child’s household, and child functional status.

  • Data sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics, National Survey of Children With Special Health Care Needs, 2005–2006, and National Survey of Children With Special Health Care Needs, 2009–2010.
