The growth of the uninsured population over time -- it now totals 6.6 million in California -- is a complex problem driven by numerous economic and demographic forces. Understanding those factors, and both short- and long-term trends, is critical to informing discussion and developing practical solutions. Now in its fourth edition, the annual CHCF report Snapshot: California's Uninsured examines health coverage through the lens of various factors including: coverage sources and trends; employer size and type; likelihood of coverage by ethnicity, age, and income; and uninsured rates for noncitizens.
