Definition and Source



Uninsured Children (County Level) is the percentage of children under age 19 without health insurance.

Data Source

Data are provided by the Small Area Health Insurance Estimate (SAHIE) of the U.S. Census Bureau. 


Estimates are based on two-year average of the March Current Population Survey 2015-2019 (reflecting 2014-2018 health insurance coverage). The 2019 CPS ASEC (2018 calendar year estimates) is the first release of a “Production File” to feature a new data processing system that takes into account changes made to the health insurance questions in the 2014 CPS ASEC redesign. Changes include the addition of new variables related to types of coverage that a person held at the time of interview and from the marketplace. The 2019 new processing system (reflecting 2018 status) used a new set of variables different from those used in old system to produce the uninsured rates, and Census has not published the official codes for calculating health insurance coverage yet. According to Census, health insurance estimates created using the new CPS processing system (2018 status) should not be compared with estimates produced using the old processing system (2017 and prior). The increase in uninsured rate in 2018 may be a confirmation that the decreasing trend since 2012 has reversed or maybe just the artifact of changing production system.
