The Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee, under contract with the Department of Finance and Administration of the State of Tennessee, conducted a survey of Tennessee residents in order to ascertain their insurance status and use of medical facilities.

The survey instrument was prepared in cooperation with personnel from the Bureau of TennCare.
