  • Results represent the change in predicted probability of a WCV for every 10 percentage-point increase in the state parental eligibility threshold. Estimates are from a multivariable logistic regression of WCV receipt on Medicaid eligibility threshold. In addition to state and year fixed effects, covariates in the model included child sex, child age (y), parent sex, parent age (y), parent race, parent ethnicity, parent English-speaking status, parental smoking status, parental education level, parental structure of household, family income, family size, county poverty rate, county physician density, and county Metropolitan Statistical Area Status.
