Estimates of Health Insurance Coverage for People under 65
This report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, presents geographic estimates of people under age 65 who were uninsured, had private health insurance, or who had Medicaid or State Children's Health Insurance Program coverage. The report features data for 41 states.
The results show that the percentage of persons under age 65 who lacked any insurance coverage at a point in time varied by 20 percentage points among the states. Almost all states that were significantly higher than the U.S. rate on the percentage uninsured were significantly lower than the U.S. rate on the percentage with private coverage and vice versa.
There is a "Statcast" available as an MP3.
