A new report from the US Census finds that at 14% of residents uninsured, Danbury led CT municipal areas last year. Danbury’s rate was 60% higher than the Hartford area at 8.6%. Both the Hartford and New Haven municipal areas were below the state average of 10.2%. Among counties, Windham led the state at 14.1%, more than twice as high as neighboring Tolland County at 6.2%. The new report highlights the striking variability in uninsured rates within CT and the pressing need for health care reform. For more, see the newest CT Health Policy Project issue brief.
