This project uses Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) data to identify the factors that influence disparities in health care access and utilization among Hispanics living in different spatial contexts (e.g., new vs. established destinations, metropolitan vs. non-metropolitan areas, and restrictive vs. non-restrictive policy contexts), with a particular focus on the moderating role of immigrant status and on the role of human capital characteristics and contextual characteristics in mediating those differences.
