Health Insurance Coverage

This indicator provides the percentage of the population in a census tract who do not have health insurance coverage. The Census Bureau broadly classifies health insurance coverage as private health insurance or public coverage and defines coverage to include plans and programs that provide comprehensive health coverage. Plans that provide insurance for specific conditions or situations such as cancer and long-term care policies are not considered coverage. Likewise, other types of insurance like dental, vision, life, and disability insurance are not considered health insurance coverage.
