According to 3-year averages from the Current Population Survey, Minnesota has a lower rate of children without health insurance compared to the national average (6% vs. 9.8%).

Approximately 75,000 (6%) Minnesota children were without health insurance from 2008-2010, a slight drop from 2007-2009 when 76,000 children were without insurance.

The number is slightly lower than the number of uninsured children in Minnesota at the beginning of the decade and has dropped by more than 13,000 children since 2007.
