New Analysis of Colorado Children and Health Insurance

The Colorado Health Institute recently released its annual analysis of the number of eligible children in the state who are not enrolled in the Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) public insurance programs.

According to the analysis, about 125,000 Colorado children, or 9.7 percent of all children, did not have health insurance in 2011. This was a decrease from the 132,000 uninsured children in 2010.

View the 2011 estimates from the Colorado Health Institute here in three new publications:

  • A fact sheet that summarizes the high-level findings and maps county-level estimates. 
  • A data supplement that includes detailed tables of county-level data. 
  • A methodology document that outlines the assumptions and processes used to create the estimates.
