The overall number of US residents without health insurance remained steady from 2012 into the first 3 months of this year at 46 million—about 15% of the national population— according to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).

However, the NCHS report also showed that 57.4 million US adults and children, when interviewed early this year, had been uninsured for at least part of the previous year and 34.3 million were uninsured for more than a year. These figures also represent no change from 2012. When researchers compared figures for the uninsured from the first 3 months of this year with rates in 1997, they found slight increases among adults aged 18 to 64 years. On a more positive note the data showed that only half as many children aged 17 years or younger were uninsured during the first 3 months of this year compared with 1997: 7.1% vs 13.9%.
