Race, Ethnicity, and Health

Data from the 2002 round of the National Survey of America's Families show that insurance coverage increased by 6 percentage points for low-income black and white children and 5 percentage points for low-income Hispanic children between 1997 and 2002. Twenty percent of Hispanic children were uninsured in 2002 compared with 9 percent of black children and 7 percent of white children. Insurance coverage dropped for low-income Hispanic adults between 1997 and 2002 while remaining flat for low-income black and white adults over this period.
