Definitions: Percent and number of children under age 18 living in families with incomes below poverty level.

Uninsured rates based on Colorado Health Institute (CHI) analyses of data from the 2009, 2010 and 2011 American Community Surveys (ACS). A child was counted as uninsured if his or her parent reported that the child did not have any form of health insurance at the time at which the ACS questionnaire was administered. CHI applied a method developed by the University of Missouri to apportion ACS geographic strata to Colorado counties in order to yield county-level estimates. Due to several counties being part of the same ACS stratum, uninsured rates will be similar for several rural counties.
Data Source: Colorado Health Institute
