CFED Assets & Opportunity Scorecard

Uninsured by Race

Definition

Ratio of the uninsured rate of the white, non-Hispanic population to populations of color (Black or African-American; American Indian and Native Alaskan; Asian; Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander; Hispanic or Latino; some other race; two or more races) under age 65, 2010.

Calculated by dividing the higher value by the lower value, i.e., the uninsured rate of the white population divided by populations of color, except in Hawaii and Vermont where white populations have higher rates of being uninsured.

A ratio of 1 indicates perfect equality; the higher the ratio, the greater the inequality. For example, the uninsured rate for people of color in Utah is 2.6 times higher than for white people.

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 the nonelderly, white, non-Hispanic population and nonelderly people of color. In all states except Hawaii and Vermont, people of color are uninsured at higher rates. For example in South Dakota, people of color are 3.5 times more likely to lack health insurance than white, non-Hispanics (36% and 10% uninsured, respectively).
