More than one in eight Indiana and Ohio residents were without health insurance in 2010, according to the most recent census figures.
Both states have uninsured rates that are lower than the 16.3 percent of citizens recorded nationally.
Blacks, people of mixed race and Hispanics were far more likely to be uninsured than white non-Hispanics. Also having high numbers among the non-insured were the foreign born, non-citizens and those with less than a high school education.
For example, an estimated 26 percent of Hispanics in Allen County were uninsured compared to 12 percent of whites. An estimated 40 percent of blacks in Kosciusko County were without health insurance.
