Kansas’s Edge Over U.S. Uninsured Rate Has Disappeared (December 2019)

In late October, the U.S. Census Bureau released its latest estimates on health insurance coverage. In 2018, the overall uninsured rates in Kansas and the U.S. were similar.

Census Bureau Releases Insurance Coverage Data (September 2019)

In early September, the U.S. Census Bureau released new estimates on health insurance coverage. The 2018 data showed the U.S. uninsured rate had increased slightly, to 8.9 percent, while the uninsured rate was 8.8 percent in Kansas and had not changed significantly. Today, the U.S. Census Bureau released additional, limited data from the American Community Survey for population subgroups. However, statistical tests needed to compare Kansas and U.S. rates and trends over time cannot be performed with the limited data released. This report provides the limited data available at this time and KHI will provide further analysis when more data is released by the U.S. Census Bureau, expected to be in mid-October.
