The Uninsured in the March 1998 Current Population Survey: Charts from Tabulations by ASPE. Relationship to Family Head


  • Persons who either live alone or are part of a traditional family--a married couple or a single person with children--were relatively likely to have health insurance in 1997. Only 12-13% of them were uninsured.
  • Children too old to be insured as a dependent; persons related to, but not the child of the head; and persons not related to anyone else in the household were more likely than average to have been uninsured in 1997.
