Health Insurance Coverage and the Uninsured, by Month

Since 1995, the percentage of workers both with and without health insurance coverage has tracked closely with the unemployment rate, according to a new analysis of monthly data by EBRI.

While the link between employment and health coverage is well-documented, EBRI’s new report tracks the data on a monthly basis to show the direct correlation. Currently, despite signs of economic recovery from the 2008−2009 recession, employment-based health insurance coverage remains well below the levels of the 1990s.

Full details are published in the October EBRI Notes, available online here.

The press release is online here.
