The following two charts show the relationship between coverage status and race or national origin Hispanics of any race are counted as Hispanics. The first chart compares a given race's representation in the insured and uninsured populations. The second chart shows the percentages of children in each race/national origin who are uninsured.
- Although white children comprise 67% of the insured population under 18 years, they are less than half 46% of the uninsured population under 18.
- Hispanics, on the other hand, comprise a disproportionate share of uninsured children: Hispanic children comprise 13% of insured children, but 29% of the uninsured.
- African-American children are also over-represented among uninsured children, although not to as great a degree as Hispanics: they represent 15% of insured children, but 19% of the uninsured.
- Over 1/4 29% of all Hispanic children are uninsured, compared with 19% of all African-American non-Hispanic children and 11% of all white non-Hispanic children.
