About the Colorado Health Access Survey
The Colorado Health Access Survey (CHAS) is an extensive survey of health care coverage, access and utilization in Colorado. A follow-up to the 2008-2009 Colorado Household Survey, this survey is administered every other year via a random sample telephone survey of more than 10,000 households across the state – providing detailed information that is representative of the 5 million-plus Coloradans.
A program of The Colorado Trust, CHAS provides information to help policymakers, as well as health care,
business and community leaders, more fully understand health challenges and advance shared solutions to
improve health coverage and care for Coloradans. CHAS is designed to serve as a scientific method of tracking change over time, providing more reliable information than single-point snapshots.
Throughout 2012, issue briefs and additional information on key topics – such as health insurance affordability, emergency care utilization and the effects of the economic downturn – will be available.
