State among national leaders in number of residents with health insurance
Wisconsin had one of the nation's lowest rates of people without health insurance over the last three years.
The Census Bureau said today (Wednesday) that an average of 480,000 Badger State residents were uninsured from 2005-07. That's 8.8 percent of the total population.
Neighboring Iowa and Minnesota had similar rates which were about half the national average of 15.3 percent for 2007.
