The purpose of this dissertation is to document the relationship between state-level same-sex marriage laws on health insurance coverage in same-sex households. Using data from the American Community Survey, this dissertation demonstrates that state policy environments extending legal protections to same-sex couples were associated with narrower disparities in employer-sponsored health insurance for cohabiting adults in same-sex couples and their children.
