The following chapter presents estimates of the resources that would be needed to increase the health services utilization of uninsured children and adults to the levels used by their insured counterparts. These estimates of resource demands will be used in the concluding chapter, along with the estimates of the value of forgone healthy life years presented in this chapter, to consider the costeffectiveness of providing health insurance to those currently uninsured.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
