The Uninsured in the March 1998 Current Population Survey: Charts from Tabulations by ASPE. Education


(Persons 18-64 Years Old)


  • Non-aged adults with the highest probabilities of being uninsured in 1997 were those who stopped school at or before eighth grade.
  • College graduates were unlikely to be uninsured because they are more likely to have jobs in which health insurance premiums are part of the wage.
  • Still, even among those with a degree or with graduate training, 7%-10% were uninsured in 1997.
