New Census figures show 9 percent of residents lacked health insurance last year
New figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show that about 9 percent of Wisconsin residents did not have health insurance last year.
That's consistent with other recent surveys.
And Wisconsin has the fifth-lowest rate of uninsured residents in the country, tied with Iowa and Vermont.
The annual Census survey showed that just more than 5 percent of Wisconsin's kids were uninsured, while 12 percent of 18- to 64-year-olds lacked coverage.
