In 2010, 19 percent of all children in Colorado had at least one parent who was uninsured at some point during the year, below the national average of 23 percent. Research shows that when parents are covered by health insurance, their children are also more likely to be covered and are less likely to experience a gap in health care coverage. For more information about how Colorado compares to states around the country, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
