Fast Fact – January 29, 2021

Health insurance is critical to both the well-being of Colorado children and the economic security of their families. In 2018, 4.8 percent of Colorado children (more than 62,000 kids) under 19 went without health insurance, an increase from 4.5 percent of kids in 2017. Although the uninsured rate statewide has declined overall by more than two thirds in the last decade, our progress has stalled since 2015, and the share of children who are uninsured varies significantly across counties. To learn about the uninsured rate in your county, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
