Research Reports

EHF’s research uncovers invaluable insights about health policy and systems, and puts forward real, actionable pathways to deliver advances in health for all Texans.

We’ve produced more than 100 reports focused on health from all angles: social determinants of health, rural health, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, the plight of uninsured Texans, life expectancy in Texas neighborhoods, early childhood brain development and much more.

Plus, our annual Texas Health Policy Polls illustrate Texans’ experiences with access and affordability of health care, reveal what they believe should be the state’s top health priorities, and outline the roles that state and national governments should take to make the health system work better.
