The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research has just released a 2-page Fact Sheet presenting county-by-county estimates of the number of California residents who have lost health insurance during the economic downturn.
The new analysis finds that rates of uninsured increased on average by 5 percentage points from 2007 data. The number of Californians without health insurance grew in all counties. 37 counties, from Imperial to Kern to Shasta, had uninsured rates above the statewide average of 24.3%.
