About 20% of Low-Income Calif. Residents Uninsured
About one in five California residents whose incomes are at or below 200% of the federal poverty level had no health coverage in 2006, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The data also showed that there are 218 U.S. counties with more than 250,000 residents in which at least 50% of low-income residents were uninsured.
