Why did the number of Americans without health insurance for 2004 change in the last 12 months? The August 2005 report issued by the Census Bureau said:
In 2004, 45.8 million people were without health insurance coverage, up from 45.0 million people in 2003
What did the just released 2006 report say the number of uninsured were in ’04?
In 2005, 46.6 million people were without health insurance coverage, up from 45.3 million people in 2004
What happened to half a million people? If the original number was correct and the increase 1.3 million, then America really has 47.1 million uninsureds. This joined the series of unanswered questions posed to my elected representatives.
