Uninsured by Gender

Definition

Ratio of uninsured rate of the male non-elderly population to the female non-elderly population, 2010.

The ratio is calculated by dividing the higher value by the lower value, i.e. uninsured rate of the male population by uninsured rate of the female population.

A ratio of 1 indicates perfect equality; the higher the ratio, the greater the inequality. For example, the uninsured rate of men in the District of Columbia is 1.8 times higher than for women.

Description

The uninsured are often one serious illness or accident away from financial insecurity. This measure provides an indication of the disparity in the rate of being uninsured between men and women. In all states, men are uninsured at a rate higher than women. For example, in Vermont men lack health insurance at almost twice the rate of women (12% and 7% respectively). A factor in the disparity may be that men, particularly those without children, generally do not qualify for public benefit programs.
