This paper presents trends in the growth in the US uninsured population, using cross-sectional national estimates from 1977,1987,1989, and 1992 and focusing specifically on coverage problems experienced by Hispanic Americans.
An examination of the composition of uninsured persons added between 1977 and 1992 shows that almost 40% of the difference is accounted for by persons of Hispanic origin, with those of Mexican origin alone constituting 27%. In addition, the annual average rate of growth in the uninsured Hispanic population between 1977 and 1992 was 9.7%, compared only 2.3% for the uninsured non-Hispanic population.
