Half of the Non-elderly Uninsured in the U.S. are People of Color

“… While a plurality (41%) of the uninsured are non-Hispanic Whites, in general, people of color are at higher risk of being uninsured than Whites. People of color make up 43% of the nonelderly U.S. population but account for over half of the total nonelderly uninsured population (Figure 4). Hispanics and Blacks have significantly higher uninsured rates (19% and 11%, respectively) than Whites (8%) (Figure 4). However, Asians have the lowest uninsured rate at 7%.
