Household Income Rises, Poverty Rate Declines, Number of Uninsured Up

The US Census Bureau released it’s 2007 Data today. It concluded that nationwide, Income Rises, Poverty Rate Declines and the Number of Uninsured Up.

You would think with Incomes rising… the Number of Uninsured would be down. Thats not happening.

You would also think that as the Poverty Rates Decline… that more people would be getting insurance. That’s not happening.

Health and medical insurance has risen so much, that many people are choosing to go uninsured then to be safe. That’s whats happening.

  1. Actually, the number of uninsured went down according to the report. But this was due to more people getting public assistance, like SCHIP for kids or Medicaid. I wrote a post explaining all this on my blog at http://current.pic.tv/2008/08/26/number-of-uninsured-goes-down/

    Damon – I was going from the Census Report.
