Health Insurance Coverage: 2001

Report Number P60-220
Robert J. Mills

Reversing 2 years of falling uninsured rates, the share of the population without health insurance rose in 2001. An estimated 14.6 percent of the population or 41.2 million people were without health insurance coverage during the entire year in 2001, up from 14.2 percent in 2000, an increase of 1.4 million people.

The estimates in this report are based on the 2002 Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Demographic Supplement, conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Respondents provide answers to the best of their ability, but as with all surveys, the estimates may differ from the actual values. A copy of the CPS Supplement questionnaire is available electronically.
