Education Linked to Insurance Coverage, UCLA Study Finds
A recent study from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research finds that about 42% of women without a high school diploma lack health insurance coverage, compared with about 25% of women with a high school diploma and 11% of women with a college degree. According to the researchers, the study underscores the importance of encouraging women to pursue higher education. The study used data from the 2007 California Health Interview Survey.
