4 Uninsured rate is the number of uninsured people in the specified category divided by the total number of people in that specific category.    For example, 9.2% of those age 0-18 are uninsured.

5 Percent of uninsured is the number of uninsured people in the specified category divided by the total uninsured population.  For example, 15.0% of the uninsured are age 0-18.  Race/Ethnicity data for American Indians and Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, and non-Latinos reporting more than one race are not shown, and for that reason the Race/Ethnicity percentages in Table 1 do not sum to 100%.
