A June 2004 report revealed startling new statistics on uninsured Americans (1). A total of 82 million Americans—1 of 3 people younger than 65 years of age—were uninsured at some point during 2002–2003 (1). Conducted by the well-regarded Lewin Group, the study found that two thirds of the 82 million were uninsured for 6 months or more, with half lacking coverage for at least 9 months. These figures, based on U.S. Census Bureau Current Population Survey data, are far higher than the commonly cited number of 43.6 million uninsured for the entire calendar year 2002 (2).
