The figure is a line chart showing that during 2012-2014, 3.9% of children and adolescents aged 0-17 years had no usual place of health care compared with 6.7% during 1997-1999. From 1997-1999 to 2012-2014 the percentage of children and adolescents with no usual place of care declined for Hispanics (from 13.6% to 6.4%) and non-Hispanic blacks (from 8.1% to 3.8%). The change for non-Hispanic whites from 4.4% during 1997-1999 to 2.7% during 2012-2014 was not statistically significant. Hispanic children and adolescents were more likely than non-Hispanic white or non-Hispanic black children and adolescents to have no usual place of health care during 1997-2014.
* Children and adolescents were defined as having no usual place of health care if a knowledgeable adult answered "no" to the question ''Is there a place that the child goes when he or she is sick or you need advice about his or her health?" or answered "yes" and responded "emergency room" to the question, "What kind of place (do you go to most often): a clinic, doctor's office, emergency room, or some other place?"
All indicates persons of all races and ethnicities, not just those shown separately.
§ Estimates were derived from the National Health Interview Survey sample child component, based on household interviews with a national sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized U.S. population.
During 2012–2014, 3.9% of children and adolescents aged 0–17 years had no usual place of health care compared with 6.7% during 1997–1999. From 1997–1999 to 2012–2014 the percentage of children and adolescents with no usual place of care declined for Hispanics (from 13.6% to 6.4%) and non-Hispanic blacks (from 8.1% to 3.8%). The change for non-Hispanic whites from 4.4% during 1997–1999 to 2.7% during 2012–2014 was not statistically significant. Hispanic children and adolescents were more likely than non-Hispanic white or non-Hispanic black children and adolescents to have no usual place of health care during 1997–2014.
