Interactive Map: Dramatic Increase in the Uninsured Rate in Every State

The number of Americans without health insurance is growing at an unprecedented rate. The most recent measured data from the U.S. Census Bureau showed that there were 46 million Americans without health insurance in 2007. But new research released by the North Carolina Institute of Medicine stated that in January 2009 there were an estimated 52 million uninsured in the United States.[1]

The map below shows the percentage increase in the uninsured in every state since 2007—the last time the government made an official estimate through the census. Clicking on a state will show the current number and percentage of people without health insurance.
