The Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) 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 to ascertain their insurance status and use of medical facilities. A target sample size of 5,000 households allows for obtaining accurate estimates for subpopulations. CBER prepared the survey instrument in cooperation with personnel from the Bureau of TennCare.
