Uninsured Rate Holds Steady Through the Middle of 2017

I missed this during the holiday season, but the CDC released updated estimates of the number of uninsured in the US. These estimates go through June of 2017 and show that nothing much has changed:

Since the beginning of 2015, the number of uninsured ages 0-65 has been flat at 10-11 percent. This varies from Gallup’s survey, which shows a small, steady increase in the number of all uninsured adults (ages 18-∞) starting in early 2017. The CDC will release its latest survey estimates at the end of February, so we’ll have to wait until then to see if they also begin to show an increase in the Trump era.

THE END...
