I am new to NHGIS but not ACS. I would like to use NHGIS to produce the number of Medicaid enrollees in each ZCTA by year. I was able get enrollment estimates for the 2011-2015 ACS.
A few questions…
Since I used the 5-year ACS to get these estimates, are the zip-level enrollment counts accurate down to the census tract level for the 5-year period?
Is it possible to get accurate 1-year estimates of zip-level enrollment counts usnig NHGIS?
I’m guessing the answer to (2) is no, but I thought I would ask.
