1997 Chartbook on Childrens' Insurance Status . Insurance Status by Age Class


The following two charts show the differences in coverage status among children of different age groups.

The second chart shows the percentages of children in each age group who are uninsured.

  • The distribution of uninsured children among age groups is close to that of the distribution of insured children, and levels of uninsurance remain fairly constant among different ages through age 17.
