The Kaiser Family Foundation recently launched their updated 2008 health coverage data with new numbers from the most recent census. This is a handy site for learning more about how people get coverage and for helping understand who makes up the uninsured.
Their site includes data on how people get coverage and specific details on the uninsured, such as their family work status, their gender, and their ethnicity.
