Fact Sheets: Who Are the Remaining Uninsured?
March 21, 2019
This interactive map and the related fact sheets provide state, county, and congressional district data on declines in uninsured rates between 2013 and 2017 (after the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) major provisions took effect). They also provide data on the remaining uninsured — disproportionately people with low or moderate incomes, young or middle-aged adults, and people of color. And in every state, the large majority of the uninsured live in working families.
Declines in Uninsured Rates Under the ACA, and Reaching the Remaining Uninsured
Decline in Uninsured Rate, 2013-2017
All figures are based on CBPP analysis using the 2013 and 2017 American Community Survey and reflect the uninsured rate for those under age 65. Data are available for all states, all congressional districts, and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more. In the counties map, gray areas denote counties with populations below 65,000 for which data are not available or, in the case of 11 counties, where the uninsured rate rose. In the congressional districts map, changes in the uninsured rate in North Carolina are unavailable due to significant redistricting since 2013.
