Children without health insurance by race and ethnicity

Data Provided By

Definitions: Children under age 19 not covered by any health insurance by race and ethnicity. 

The data are based on health insurance coverage at the time of the survey; interviews are conducted throughout the calendar year. Children receiving health insurance through a variety of State Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP) are counted as having health insurance.

Data Source: Population Reference Bureau, analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2017-2019, 2021 American Community Survey. These data are derived from data available in ACS table C27001 (B,C,D,E,G,H,I).

Footnotes: Updated September 2022.
S - Estimates suppressed when the confidence interval around the percentage is greater than or equal to 10 percentage points. 
N.A. – Data not available. 
Note: Differences in estimates by race and ethnicity between 2021 ACS and prior years may be the result of demographic changes, and/or differences in question wording (the ACS question on race was revised in 2020 to make it consistent with the 2020 Census race question), processing, coding updates, or methodological differences in the population estimates used as controls. For more information, see the ACS Race User Note: Improvements to the Race Question.
