1 in 4 Americans without health coverage

Reuters, April 20, 2012

As the U.S. Supreme Court ponders the fate of healthcare reform in the current election year, a study released on Thursday shows that one in four working-age Americans went without insurance at some point in 2011, often as a result of unemployment and other job changes. The study by the Commonwealth Fund polled 2,100 people aged 19 to 64 and found that 26 percent of non-elderly adults went without insurance—a percentage that researchers said equals about 48 million people when measured against U.S. Census data.
