Latinos Lack Health Insurance At Double The National Average

The percentage of Latinos lacking health insurance is double the national average, and the percentages are increasing at a rate higher than those of other groups.

That is the conclusion of a study by the Latino Data Project of the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies (CLACLS) at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City.

"Health Insurance Patterns among Latinos in Comparative Perspective, 2004-2007" was one of six studies recently released by the CLACLS, including an overview of "The Latino Population in New York City, 2008."

The health insurance report, which looked at the 10 most Latino-populous states in the U.S., noted that "in all states examined, what is most conspicuous is the disparity in the rate at which Latino adults are uninsured compared with the other major race/ethnic groups." In New York State alone, nearly one-third of Latinos are uninsured.

The Latino Data Project makes information available on the growing Latino population of the United States, and especially New York City, through the analysis of extant data available from a variety of sources, such as the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Institutes for Health, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and state- and local-level data sources.
