 The data source is BRFSS (1993–2014 panels). Linear Probability Models and Poisson Regression Models are used to examine dichotomous and count outcomes, respectively. All models control for state earned income tax credit rate, refundability of state earned income tax credit, Maximum food stamp allotment for a family of 3 maximum TANF allotment for a family of 3, 1year lagged GDP, comprehensive Medicaid expansion, age, marital status, education and having minor children, and year as well as state fixedeffects. All models are weighted for complex survey design and nonresponse. Standard errors are robust and clustered at the state level. Results of LPMs and PRMs are presented as percentage point differences in the probability of an outcome and Rate Ratios, respectively. All monetary values are inflationadjusted. Boldface indicates statistical significance. Significance levels: *(access to care: pvalue.025, health behaviors: pvalue.0125, and health outcomes: pvalue .010)
