UNINSURED: 28.1 million lack health insurance in 2017

The number of Americans of all ages who do not have health insurance coverage has decreased from 48.6 million in 2010 to 28.1 million in early 2017, according to survey data collected each year by the National Center for Health Statistics.  This represents a decrease from 16 percent of the population in 2010 to 8.8 percent in 2017.

About 2 million children (aged under 18 years) gained health insurance coverage in this same time period — 5.8 million had no health insurance coverage in 2010 compared to 3.9 million in early 2017.

Comparative figures going back to 1997 are also provided in this report.
