Written by:
Report Number ACSBR-012


Disparities in health coverage by race persist despite data showing that differences in the uninsured rate between White, non-Hispanic individuals under the age of 65 and members of other race and Hispanic origin groups narrowed after many provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) were implemented in 2014.This brief uses 2021 American Community Survey (ACS) 1-year estimates to examine differences in health insurance coverage for the civilian noninstitutionalized population by race and Hispanic origin and related characteristics that reflect social determinants of health, such as age, employment, poverty status, and living arrangements.
