Uninsured Children

Data released Thursday by Families USA highlights the number of
children lacking health care across the nation using new data from
the U.S. Census Bureau.

From 2005-2007, the state saw an average of 307,000 uninsured
kids - or 12.1 percent of children in the state.

The number was unchanged from the preceding three-year period.

The report says 86.2 percent of uninsured Georgia kids are in
families where at least one parent works.

The group found 67.3 percent of uninsured Georgia kids are in
families making less than $35,000 annually.

Families USA director Ron Pollack says the numbers are
especially important as fewer jobs mean more parents without
insurance.
