Health Insurance Coverage in the Construction Industry

Health insurance coverage is essential for keeping construction workers healthy, preventing disease, and reducing disabilities or death.

This story-dashboard contains two sets of charts, navigated by clicking the blue caption boxes or arrows at the top of the dashboard.  They summarize data for health insurance coverage among construction workers from 2011 to 2021 into two categories: 1) Insurance in Construction and Other Industries and 2) Employer-provided Insurance. The data is from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey (CPS), downloaded through IPUMS, with calculations by the CPWR data center.

Information about specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the information icon Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard title. To get a full view of the dashboard on a mobile device, zoom out slightly and use landscape mode, which will provide a better navigation experience.

You can download the data as a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is color-coded for each set of charts, and each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.

This dashboard will be updated annually when new data is available, with the next update scheduled for Winter 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
