Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version of it here.
The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that the American Community Survey (ACS) estimates that 9.4% of Americans don’t have health insurance coverage. This is an all time low because of the passage of the ACA. Like other statistics though, different groups have a different percentage of people that are uninsured. This visualization lets you explore the number of people that are uninsured for a number of different populations.
To create this data visualization I gathered data from the ACS on American Fact Finder. I used Table B27001 from 2010 to 2015. I then used Tableau to visualize the data. If you are interested in more data like this be sure to check out my “How American’s Differ by Age” Data Visualization.
