So just an update on the latest data from the Census Bureau’s Small Area Health Insurance Estimates program which put out 2010 data last month. noted last year was that for 2009 the estimated health insurance coverage for children (under age 18) population was higher than any county in Pennsylvania.
So with 2010 data that is still the case. At 3.7% of children uninsured by my quick scan it looks to me to be one of the lowest uninsured rate for large county in the US. Honolulu, Hawaii, DuPage county in Illinois, Hartford and New Haven in CT and Middlesex County, MA are all a bit lower, but that is it.
