The least insured county in every state

Some states have counties where more than half of the nonelderly population does not have any health insurance, while other states boast having no county where the uninsured rate is more than 6 percent, according to financial news site 24/7 Tempo.

24/7 Tempo analyzed five-year estimates of the percentage of the noninstitutionalized population under 65 without health insurance from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2019 American Community Survey

Counties were excluded if the noninstitutionalized population under 65 was less than 1,000, or if the sampling error associated with a county's data was deemed too high. The 2,945 eligible counties or equivalent places were ranked within their state based on their under 65 uninsured rates.
