  • Results represent the increased probability of a WCV for a child whose parent is enrolled in Medicaid. Estimates are from multivariable probit regression of WCV receipt on instrumental parental Medicaid enrollment. 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.

  • a Marginal predicted probability expressed in percentage points, calculated at the means of all other variables in model.
