Reasons for Differences in the Percentage Uninsured
Figure 1 indicates that children under age 19 in the South and West are more likely
to lack health insurance, and that those in the Midwest and New England are more likely
to be covered. Various characteristics of a state's population may account for these
differences. Nationwide, the uninsured rate for children is related to race and ethnicity,
family structure, and family members' employment. The prevalence of particular
population and employer characteristics may account for some of the regional or state
variation in uninsured rates for children. The percentage of a state's child population that
is uninsured may also be affected by state policies, such as eligibility criteria for the
state's Medicaid program or its State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).
