Most Have Health Insurance

According to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau, most Americans had health insurance coverage for all of 2010. A relatively small 16.3% of the population (49.9 million people) did not have coverage; a large majority of 83.7% (256.2 million) did have health insurance coverage for the entire year.
Income was also an important factor; uninsured rates were higher among those in lower income brackets. Households with incomes of less than $25,000 were more than 3 times as likely to be uninsured than members of households with incomes of $75,000 or more.
Racial minorities and individuals born abroad were also more likely to be uninsured. Noncitizens had the highest uninsured rates with 45.1% lacking coverage. Naturalized citizens fared better, with 20% lacking coverage. About 11% of non-Hispanic whites were insured for all of 2010. Racial minorities were not as likely to have coverage; the uninsured rate for Hispanics Asians, and blacks was significantly higher, with 30.7%, 18.1%, and 20.8% lacking coverage, respectively.
