problem searching for health insurance tables by race/ethnicity

A data user recently contacted PRB asking for help using American FactFinder to obtain county-level ACS estimates of children’s health insurance coverage by race and ethnicity. Within the advanced search menu, they began the search by selecting a single racial category from the “Race and Ethnic Groups” tab (Black or African American), and then tried to select “health insurance” under topics. When they did this, no ACS tables were listed. However, if they selected any other topic, all the topic tables that are disaggregated by race and ethnicity were listed. Also, we found that if “race/ethnicity of individual” was selected rather than a single racial/ethnic group then the health insurance tables would appear. Is there a reason that you cannot search for health insurance tables for a single race/ethnic group using the “Race and Ethnic Groups” tab? Is this a glitch in AFF?
