New numbers from the Census find that last year minorities in CT were more likely to be uninsured, but not being a citizen raised your risk by more than four fold. CT residents with household incomes between $25,000 and $50,000 were most likely to be without coverage. Fairfield County led the state with 11% uninsured; Tolland was lowest at 5%. The survey found that uninsured rates in all CT counties dropped from 2008 to 2009. Almost one in five Stamford and Bridgeport city residents lacked insurance.
