June 25, 2007 — In the U.S., 43.6 million people of all ages — nearly 15% of the population — needed wellbeing protections in 2006, the CDC detailed nowadays.

That figure is not significantly diverse from the CDC’s 2005 by and large assessed percentage of individuals without health protections. But the CDC notes a slight increment within the percentage of uninsured individuals of working age.

In 2006, the U.S. had 36.5 million people matured 18-64 with no wellbeing insurance. That’s 19.8% of people in that age group, up from 18.9% in 2005.

Information came from interviews with people in nearly 100,000 homes across the country. Uninsured people were those without private, government, or military wellbeing protections at the time of the interview.

Health Protections Measurements

Hispanics, young adults, and men were particularly likely to report no wellbeing protections.

Among Hispanics, 32% lacked health insurance, compared with about 16% of African-Americans and about 10% of whites.

Youthful adults were more likely than more seasoned or more youthful individuals to be uninsured. Nearly 30% of individuals aged 18-24 had no health insurance.

In comparison, the uninsured included around 9% of children younger than 18, almost 27% of adults aged 25-35, more than 18% of those aged 35-44, and 13% of grown-ups matured 45-64. Medicare coveragegenerally begins at age 65.

Among adults aged 18-44, men were more likely than ladies to report having no wellbeing protections.

The report is posted on the CDC’s web site.
