… that the uninsured rate in the United States continues to decline.
The rate of uninsured Americans declined yet again in the 2nd quarter of 2015, according to the folks over at Gallup. The uninsured rate across adults in the United States fell to 11.4%, the lowest the rate has been since Gallup began daily tracking in 2008.
While the decline in the overall rate is impressive, decreases in the uninsured rate were almost universal across the board. Whites, African-Americans, and Hispanics all saw gains in insurance coverage. For individuals under the age of 65, the drop in the uninsured rate was at least 5.7% from the fourth quarter of 2013. And all income brackets saw higher rates of coverage, with those earning less then $36,000 in annual household income seeing the rate drop by nearly 10%
