Стр. 421 - The differences that do exist usually involve "levels" for the entire population resulting from the somewhat larger businesses within the NFIB file. Tables A and B provide comparisons of the estimated universe, the survey sample, and the survey respondents. (The estimated universe measures were drawn from the Small Business Administration's (SBA) Small Business Data Base as published in the annual The State of Small Business Report.) Note on Table A that the industry-by-industry differences in these...

Стр. 395 - Index having risen by 66% over the period, inflation has changed the value of a specified level of gross too much to compare response classes. However, it can be observed that the largest firms were no more inclined to provide health insurance in 1985 than they were in 1978, and perhaps even a little less. By elimination, the smallest firms then were those left to account for the greater coverage. The overall quality of health insurance plans', ie coverages, costs, deductibles, etc.

Half of those without insurance either attributed their action to premiums being too high (33%) or to insufficient profitability (20%) — opposite sides of the same proposition. Not surprisingly, these economic reasons were most pronounced among those with coverage for no full-time employees. Another 19% said the firm could not qualify for group coverage, which implies another variant of the cost problem.

The reason was that the total benefit figure was based on the 938 respondents; the total health premium figure was based on the 794 respondents. Nevertheless, it is clear...
Стр. 395 - SMALL BUSINESS.** Sixty-five (65) percent of surveyed small business owners provided health insurance for at least a portion of their full-time employees. Approximately two-thirds (421) carried it for all and one-third (231) carried it for some. Provision was directly related to firm size — the larger the firm, the more likely it was to have employee health insurance. This relationship is clear whether firm size is measured in terms of employees (Table 2) or annual gross receipts (Table 3). **...
