Uninsured Children in the South, December 2007

Uninsured Children in the South, December 2007

Commissioned by the Foundation, this report by the Southern Institute on Children and Families provides state-by-state estimates of uninsured children in the southern region of the country, which contains 17 states and the District of Columbia. The report contains fact sheets showing estimates of uninsured children for each of these states and shows that nearly half (46%) of the over nine million uninsured children in the United States resided in the southern region.

The percentage of uninsured children in the South is disproportionately high since only 38% of all children in the United States live in the 17 southern states and the District of Columbia.
