The latest data from the US Census Bureau indicate that an estimated 68,000 Connecticut children under 18 were uninsured for the entire year in 2005. This number represents 8.2% of all Connecticut children. The uninsured rate was essentially unchanged from rates reported for Connecticut in recent years.

An estimated 37,000 Connecticut children under 19 who lived in families with income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level were uninsured. Virtually all these children are income-eligible for coverage in the HUSKY Program.
