Researchers at IHME produced estimates for age-specific Healthcare Access and Quality (HAQ) indices for ten year intervals from 1990-2016. The US national age-specific HAQ scores were compared with high-income peers (Canada, Western Europe, High-Income Asia Pacific countries, and Australasia) in 1990, 2000, 2010, and 2016. Scores among US states were also analyzed for 2010 and 2016. The public use microdata sample of the American Community Survey was used to estimate insurance coverage and the median income per person by age and state.
