81% of those without insurance are employees or family members of employees. Of these uninsured workers, most are members of families with at least one person working full-time.
The uninsured are predominantly low and moderate income persons who cannot afford to buy coverage in the individual market. Approximately two thirds have incomes below 200% of poverty.
8.3 million children are uninsured, one-fifth of the total without coverage.
Large numbers of people in all racial/ethnic groups are uninsured, but minorities suffer the most. One in ten non-Hispanic whites are uninsured, one in five African-Americans are uninsured, and one in three Hispanics are uninsured.
